05.30.07 - Astronomers now have a new "eye" for determining the distance to certain mysterious bodies in and around our Milky Way galaxy.
05.09.07 - Researchers using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope have learned what the weather is like on two distant, exotic worlds.
04.18.07 - Astronomers have laid down the cosmic equivalent of yellow "caution" tape around super hot stars, marking the zones where cooler stars are in danger of having their developing planets blasted away.
03.29.06 - The double sunset that Luke Skywalker gazed upon in the film "Star Wars" might not be a fantasy.
02.21.07 - NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has captured for the first time enough light from planets outside our solar system, known as exoplanets, to identify molecules in their atmospheres.
02.12.07 - A bunch of rowdy comets are colliding and kicking up dust around a dead star, according to new observations from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope.
01.09.07 - The three iconic space pillars photographed by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope in 1995 might have met their demise, according to new evidence from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope.
12.18.06 - New observations from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope strongly suggest that infrared light detected in a prior study originated from clumps of the very first objects of the universe.
11.07.06 - A new image from NASA's Spitzer and Hubble Space Telescopes looks more like an abstract painting than a cosmic snapshot.
10.26.06 - Astronomers using NASA's infrared Spitzer Space Telescope have discovered that an exploded star, named Cassiopeia A, blew up in a somewhat orderly fashion, retaining much of its original onion-like layering.
10.12.06 - NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has made the first measurements of the day and night temperatures of a planet outside our solar system.
08.31.06 - A new image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope is helping astronomers understand how stardust is recycled in galaxies.
08.14.06 - Astronomers have long scrutinized the vast and layered clouds of the Orion nebula, an industrious star-making factory visible to the naked eye in the sword of the famous hunter constellation. Yet, Orion is still full of secrets.
07.24.06 - Astronomers using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope have found evidence that dusty disks of planet-forming material tug on and slow down the young, whirling stars they surround.
06.08.06 - Astronomers using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and other telescopes think they've found the source of the dust that permeates the universe. New observations indicate the dust comes from supernovas, violent explosions of massive stars.
06.05.06 - The Andromeda galaxy, named for the mythological princess who almost fell prey to a sea monster, appears tranquil in a new image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope.
05.12.06 - Big stars usually aren't shy about anything, not even death. At the end of their lives, they throw explosive tantrums, called supernovae, flinging abundant amounts of hot gas and radiation into space.
05.10.06 - NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has snapped a picture of the bits and pieces making up Comet 73P/Schwassman-Wachmann 3, which is continuing to break apart on its periodic journey around the sun.› Comet Won't Hit Earth
04.26.06 - A pair of dancing galaxies appears dressed for a cosmic masquerade in a new image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope.
04.05.06 - NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has uncovered new evidence that planets might rise up out of a dead star's ashes.
