NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, manages the Spitzer Space Telescope
mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington.
The US space agency's Spitzer space telescope
surveyed six groups of neighbouring stars with masses similar to that of the Sun.
The new version includes featured observatories with images from NASA observatory satellites, including x-ray images from NASA's Chandra satellite; infrared images by the Spitzer Space Telescope
and the Infrared Astronomical Satellite (IRAS); a microwave map of the sky by the Wilkinson Microwave Anistropy Probe (WMAP); and ultraviolet images by the GALEX Satellite.
The observations come from the Spitzer Space Telescope
, which recently focused on a huge, eye-shaped cloud of gas and dust called the Helix nebula, 700 light-years from Earth.
The new Sombrero picture combines a recent infrared observation from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope
with a well- known visible light image from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.
The infrared Spitzer space telescope
identified the planet which is thought to be a million years old,meaning it is a mere baby.
A large international team of researchers found the planet when looking at data acquired by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope
in June-July 2016, when the telescope was looking at a recently discovered microlensing event called OGLE-2016-BLG-1190.
But Spitzer Space Telescope
images reveal a faint infrared glow--there's still something there.
LOS ANGELES (CyHAN)- Planets having atmospheres rich in helium may be common in our Milky Way galaxy, according to a new theory based on data from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope
The star-studded panorama of our galaxy is constructed from more than 2 million infrared snapshots taken over the past 10 years by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope
Researchers using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope
to study developing stars have had a hard time figuring out why the stars give off more infrared light than expected.
Now, a different team of scientists spying on the presumed planet, dubbed Fomalhaut b, with the Spitzer Space Telescope
suggests that the dot in the original image isn't a planet at all.
