Description

ICESat-2 (short for Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite), slated to launch in 2018, will use lasers and a very precise detection instrument to measure the elevation of Earth’s surface. By timing how long it takes laser beams to travel from the satellite to Earth and back, scientists can calculate the height of glaciers, sea ice, forests, lakes and more – including the changing ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica.

A stock rocket called ICESat-2. Built with 49 of the finest parts, its root part is probeCoreCube.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.3.0.
