    While there is the ICESAT satellite, that has a 532 nm laser which fires 40 
    times a second and will launch soon, there is another one called CALIPSO 
    which will go up next year. It fires it 532 nm laser 20 times a second. It 
    going into a sun-synchronous 705 km circular orbit.
    Time to get a low light video camera, and try to capture the very fast laser 
    pulse, while observing the icesat satellite :)
