It’s largest instrument is the Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR), which is capable of sensing the planet surface through clouds and darkness. That ability has enabled scientists to monitor Earth’s poles, which are subject to months-long winter nights and frequent storms. ASAR acquired this image of Spitsbergen—Norway’s largest island—on September 6, 2011. The gray scale image shows Spitsbergen’s r...
