Paper Abstract

NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) has been engaging in Earth and planetary science instruments development for many years. With stunning topographic details of the Mars surface to Earth's surface maps and ice sheets dynamics of recent years, NASA GSFC has provided vast amount of scientific data products that gave detailed insights into Earth's and planetary sciences. In this paper we will review the past and present of space-qualified laser programs at GSFC and offer insights into future laser based science instrumentations.
