A 'loner' gas called Argon has paired up to make molecules in the tattered remains of an exploded star.
Astronomers using the combined power of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array telescope in Chile and NASA’s Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes have discovered a far-flung trio of primitive galaxies nestled inside an enormous blob of primordial gas nearly 13 billion light-years from Earth.
NASA's WISE mission has released a new and improved atlas and catalog brimming with data on three-quarters of a billion objects detected during two full scans of the sky.
Supersonic jets burst out of a young star's cocoon in a new image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array.
Haunting images from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope show the disembodied remains of dying stars.
NASA's Hubble, Spitzer and Chandra space telescopes are teaming up to look deeper into the universe than ever before. With a boost from natural "zoom lenses" found in space, they should be able to uncover galaxies that are as much as 100 times fainter than what these three great observatories typically can see.

The Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) and the Infrared Processing and Analysis Center (IPAC) announce the AllWISE Data Release. The AllWISE program combines data from WISE cryogenic and NEOWISE post-cryogenic survey phases, to form the most comprehensive view of the mid-infrared sky currently available.
The NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED) released an update on 26 September 2013. Content highlights include the addition of 62,606 new objects and 390,249 new photometric data points, and 1,241,586 references to objects from the literature. In addition, 15,855 HI spectra from the Arecibo Legacy Fast ALFA Survey have been added to NED. Nine new review articles with contextual links are now available in the Level 5 knowledgebase.
The Infrared Processing and Analysis Center at Caltech announces the availability of six-month graduate student fellowships in Winter-Spring 2014. The program is designed to allow students from other institutions to visit IPAC-Caltech and perform astronomical research in close association with an IPAC scientist.
NEOWISE and the Infrared Processing and Analysis Center (IPAC) announce the 2013 NEOWISE Post-Cryo Data Release on May 22, 2013.
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.
