The US space agency NASA launched an advanced space laser into orbit on Saturday.

It will be used to measure how much ice remains on the Earth as global warming continues to shrink the glaciers. The last similar mission was launched in 2003 and lasted for six years.

The new launch comes at a time when many climate change projects in the US have been cancelled by the Trump administration.
