Planck's all sky maps showing the oldest light in our universe, as well as the calculated distribution of mass of the universe, are now available in a format suitable for use in planetarium systems and other 3D software.
The Planck space mission has released the most accurate and detailed map ever made of the oldest light in the universe, revealing new information about its age, contents and origins.
The Planck space telescope has made the first conclusive detection of a bridge of hot gas connecting a pair of galaxy clusters across 10 million light-years of intergalactic space.
NASA is extending three missions affiliated with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. -- Kepler, the Spitzer Space Telescope and the U.S. portion of the European Space Agency's Planck mission.
New images from the Planck mission show previously undiscovered islands of star formation and a mysterious haze of microwave emissions in our Milky Way galaxy.
The Planck mission released a new data catalogue Tuesday from initial maps of the entire sky.
NEOWISE and the Infrared Processing and Analysis Center (IPAC) announce the 2013 NEOWISE Post-Cryo Data Release on May 22, 2013.
Information about NASA's 2009 Decadal Process.
The NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED) released an update on 25 April 2013. Content highlights include the addition of 310,514 new objects and 1.7 million cross-identifications across the electromagnetic spectrum based on data integrated from 3,167 new publications. Over 27,000 new images contributed by authors of journal articles have been included, and eight new review articles with contextual links to database queries are available in the Level 5 knowledgebase.
ESA, NASA, the Planck Collaboration, and IRSA announce the first release of all sky temperature maps, foreground component maps and cosmology results from the Planck mission. The NASA Planck Archive is hosted at IRSA within IPAC.
A number of IPAC projects, teams and individuals were honored today with NASA Achievement Awards. These recognitions reflect the dedication and creativity of these individuals and teams as well as the support and contributions by many others at IPAC that make each success possible.
This conference aims to explore the formation and evolution of galaxies using mostly gas tracers. Infrared and submillimeter observations gauge not only the quantity and distribution of gas in galaxies, but also the thermal and dynamical state of its various phases. Star formation and feedback involve physics that can be constrained with long wavelength observations: photoelectric heating, UV excitation, turbulence, cosmic rays, shock waves, atomic and molecular line emission, and thermal emission from dust. The conference will begin with what we know about the physical conditions of gas in the nearby universe out to z = 1, and then push outwards to earlier epochs when galaxies were forming most of their stars.
