Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment
The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) mission is a joint mission of NASA and the German Aerospace Center (DLR). Under this mission, twin satellites were launched to study the key geographical changes taking place on the Earth. The mission ended in October 2017. Using the data from this mission, a new study concluded that rapid melting of glaciers due to rising global temperatures is affecting the movement of the Earth’s axis on which planet rotates.
