I was excited to see yesterday that images from the Wide Field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) are being made public. Amazing images. Here is my new computer desktop image that I stare at in wonder.
For more info and cool images check out the WISE project website.
Some of Technology for WISE was developed at Space Dynamics Laboratory here in Cache Valley where some of my neighbors work. Another fun connection for me is that the rocket that carried WISE into orbit was launched from Vandenberg Air Force base where my Dad was serving when I was born.
