Explore cutting edge laser technology and science through NASA satellite missions that study Lunar dust, the surface of planets, and ice, clouds, land and water of our home planet Earth. Engineers and scientists will take you behind the scenes with missions like the Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite-2, launched with its green lasers in 2018, a laser communications mission being launched this year, the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer mission, and more. Plus, watch what happens when scientists team up with art and design students, producing an animated short starring an anthropomorphic light photon.
