Carried aloft by a Pegasus rocket, NASA's Submillimeter Wave Astronomy Satellite (SWAS) is expected to record the distribution of water, molecular oxygen, carbon, and carbon monoxide in dense molecular clouds that lie within 3,000 light-years of Earth, including those within the constellations Orion, Taurus, Ophiuchi, and Perseus.
Next comes a Submillimeter Wave Astronomy Satellite in mid-1993, aimed at helping decipher how molecular clouds collapse to form stars and planetary systems.
The astronomers used HST to capture the light from stars which tells us the "current" (as of when the light was emitted, 11 billion years ago) shape of the galaxies, while ALMA observed submillimeter waves from cold clouds of gas and dust, where new stars are being formed.

For the overlap region, people who work in the field use he terms millimeter waves and submillimeter waves for wavelengths greater than or less than 1 millimeter.
Daniel Marrone and three colleagues measured the polarization of submillimeter waves from its vicinity, and they set new limits on how much--or rather how little--mass it is accreting: a pathetic 2 x [10.
