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.
After nearly 4.5 years of scanning the skies for the oldest light in the universe, the Planck telescope has been switched off.
The Keck Observatory Archive (KOA) has released raw images and spectra from the Low Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (LRIS). As of Oct 1 3,480 nights of LRIS data have been archived, and 3,294 nights are public. These data go back as far as 1994.
