SUMMARY: NASA's Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite (ICESat) has been churning out spectacular 3-D images of the Earth's icecaps, clouds, mountains and forests as part of its mission to help understand how our planet is affected by climate change. ICESat's principal mission is to measure the surface elevations of large ice sheets to determine how much they're changing. The spacecraft's images of Antarctica revealed details of ice streams along several glaciers, and megadunes in the continent's interior.
