NASA Operation IceBridge: A Science Lab in the Arctic Sky
Operation IceBridge has been set up by NASA in 2009 and will be operational until 2015. It works as a temporary replacement for a satellite that had technically malfunctioned. This mission was undertaken to monitor the changes in the ice conditions of the polar regions.
The IceBridge program makes use of a DC-8 jetliner for the monitoring and measurements, while a new satellite will be set in place in a few years.
This mission is quite agressive to do because, unlike the satellite which can make observations in a wider and farther area, the aircraft had to be flown over, and there are many additional instruments to carry with it. The upside is that these instruments provide a detailed measurement more han the satellites could.
In 2010, instead of the DC-8 jetliner, P-3 Orion was flown in its place.
Seelye Martin headed the project with a goal of making a discovery to the causes of the melting ice. Using a three dimensional map, the scope included the Artic and Antartic regions, with the focus on Pine Island Glacier.
This documentary will show the beginnings and current undertaking of the mission and the successes or failures they have so far encountered.
