Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE)
The Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE, scans the entire sky in infrared light, picking up the glow of hundreds of millions of objects and producing millions of images. The mission uncovered objects never seen before, including the coolest stars, the universe's most luminous galaxies and some of the darkest near-Earth asteroids and comets.
Hubble, the observatory, was the first major optical telescope to be placed in space, the ultimate mountaintop. Above the distortion of the atmosphere, far above rain clouds and light pollution, Hubble has an unobstructed view of the universe. Hubble is the first of the NASA Great Observatories program.
The Spitzer Space Telescope (SST), formerly the Space Infrared Telescope Facility (SIRTF), is an infrared space observatory launched in 2003. It is the fourth and final of the NASA Great Observatories program.
