NASA's Space to Ground: ICARUS Ascending


Week of Aug. 17, 2018: NASA's Space to Ground is your weekly update on what's happening aboard the International Space Station.

Icarus is a collaborative environmental experiment between Germany and Russia that studies the migratory patterns of small animals on Earth. It consists of an antenna and GPS hardware to track the movements of animals that have been tagged with small GPS receivers. The experiment may provide data about how animals move from one location to another, how animal population density shifts over time, and how diseases spread.
