GRACE 2002 – present

grace_logoThe Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) was launched on March 17, 2002 from the Russian Plesetsk Cosmodrome. The project, a joint effort between NASA and the German Center for Air and Space Flight, aims to produce 60 gravity maps of the Earth during its five year lifespan. The gravity mapping information, which will chart the evolution of gravity over time, has many applications ranging from oceanography to hydrology and glaciology.
