New Delhi: NASA kicks off six months long earth expedition program with its first mission, Ocean Melting Greenland (OMG). NASA scientists will study the repercussions of global sea rise by observing the melting glaciers of Greenland.

For Greenland tour, NASA technicians have designed many platforms which will help them in successful completion of this mission and a radar equipped GIII aircraft is one of them.

Few months ago NASA unveiled its plan to study how our home planet is changing. The program was divided into 8 major field research campaigns that will monitor critical changes in land, sea and air.

This expedition will map whole planet- from the edge of the Greenland in north to the coral reefs in South Pacific. OMG is the first step of this king-sized yet innovative project.
