NASA will launch the powerful ATLAS laser machine into an orbit


The space agency NASA is known not only the promising and unusual space missions, and the research enterprises, but also various devices and tools, the slightest changes both on the planet allowing to trace, and out of her space. Here and today the staff of NASA declared that they intend to launch soon into an orbit the new heavy-duty laser tool under the name ATLAS whose leading role and function will consist in measurement of dynamics of height of ice tops on the North Pole to Earth - the channelized initiative on tracking and prevention of possible environmental disasters on the planet.

Besides, this laser tool will also monitor changes in height of other objects on the planet, whether it be tops of mountains, the woods and even clouds. This heavy-duty laser tool was developed throughout rather long time and it works very curiously. It functions so that to send laser signals to location of the registered height, releasing pulsations of the laser of a certain frequency - and then, at return of photons back, the laser collects them and converts the obtained information into distance which photons had to overcome for return - thus, the laser defines final distance to top.

A a final stage becomes converting of this information in the specific height of top, and the laser can effectively watch dynamics of change of tops if it is about mountains, clouds and various other geographical units. But of course, first of all the laser will watch the North Pole of Earth.

the laser will be started onboard the special ICESat-2 satellite which will be able to take effectively and quickly enough him into an orbit. At the same time the research satellite will be equipped with additional tools and features which will allow to serve the laser machine if something happens directly in an orbit. Thus, the ATLAS laser machine will become the first most powerful installation which will be able to observe tops on the North Pole.
