ESA satellites track Antarctic ice
Scientists have been using satellites in orbit around Earth to monitor a group of 30 frozen glaciers in Antarctica. They have made a troubling discovery: the glaciers are losing more and more ice every year. This is worrying because it is a sign that our planet is getting warmer due to climate change.
ESA satellites will continue to watch glaciers, taking photos and gathering data. This information is invaluable to us down here on Earth, as we need to see how our planet is changing and what we can do about it!
Cool fact: 10% of Earth’s land is covered by glaciers!
