NASA Infrared Telescope WISE

Now scientists all over the world can be studied hundreds of millions of galaxies, stars and asteroids collected in the first bundle of data from NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) mission.Beginning in 2009,  infrared telescope WISE take nearly 2.7 million images, with which scientists have found about 33,000 steroids between the planets Jupiter and Mars, and  20 comets.   

According to NASA infrared telescope WISE could  fixe  also the 133near Earth objects  (NEOs),  such as comets  and  asteroids,  which  orbits that  come within 28 million miles (about 45 million kilometers) from the orbit of our Earth.Data from the first 57 % will be accessible through an online public archive and  complete survey, with improved data processing, will be made available in the spring of 2012.Astronomers will use WISE’s infrared data to hunt for hidden strange incident and to study trends  in  large populations of known objects.
