WISE space telescope reveals new stars, galaxies and asteroids

Subscribe
NASA has published thousands of images of new stars, galaxies and asteroids made by Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE), on its web-site. The space telescope, launched on December 14, 2009, mapped the entire sky using infrared light, and completed the main part of its mission, on July 17, 2010.

© NASAThe WISE space telescope data is believed to contain proof of the existence of the gas giant planet Tyche. The ninth hypothetical planet could be four times as large as Jupiter or at least just as large. Tyche is in the outer part of the Oort cloud approximately fifteen times farther from the Sun than the Earth.

The Heart nebula is reminiscent of the human heart, and the adjacent nebula, while Soul, appears as more of a symbolic heart shape, hence the poetic name.
