NASA uses space laser to study polar ocean plants

NASA uses space laser to study polar ocean plants Rather than just exploring Mars and other planets, NASA also leads important climate research on the Earth. One of those projects is the agency’s Cloud-Aerosol LIdar with Orthogonal Polarization (CALIOP), an instrument aboard the Cloud-Aerosol Lidar
