Infrared Telescopes Look Further into the Universe

Hosted by

The bright orange object seen earlier this week in the early-morning sky was NASA's latest effort to unlock the mysteries of the universe. The mission comes just as the European Space Agency released stunning new photographs that capture the birth of stars. NASA's infrared telescope is designed to illuminate objects with little light, but great importance. Amy Mainzer is Project Manager for the Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
