Scientists using data from NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) have discovered the coldest class of star-like bodies. They call them and they are sometimes referred to as “failed” stars with temperatures as cool as the human body.
An assorted mix of colorful galaxies is being released today by NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer mission, or WISE. The nine galaxies are a taste of what’s to come. The mission plans to release similar images for the 1,000 largest galaxies that appear in our sky, and possibly more.
To celebrate the one-year anniversary of the launch of NASA’s Wide-Field Infrared Explorer, or WISE, the mission team has put together this image showing just a sample of the millions of galaxies that have been imaged by WISE during its survey of the entire sky.
Evidence gathered by NASA’S Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) telescope, suggests that a gas giant may be lurking in the Oort Cloud, the most remote part of the outer solar system which is believed to consist of icy comets. This would make it 375 times farther from the Sun than Pluto.
