    The James Webb Space Telescope’s hits just keep coming—and the latest gets an assist from an old friend. On Monday, NASA scientists unveiled a new photo taken by Webb of M74, a spiral galaxy 32 million light-years away, composed of about 100 billion stars. Its gargantuan spiral arms are an incredible sight to behold, but its low brightness has made it a challenge for astronomers to study—hence the reason it’s nicknamed the Phantom Galaxy. That’s why Webb is such a prime instrument for studying M74: It specializes in observing the universe in infrared and near-infrared wavelengths. The latest image, to be clear, isn’t solely the work of Webb. It’s a composite of observations taken by Webb as well as the Hubble Space Telescope—the “predecessor” to Webb that is still extremely adept at looking at objects in visible light and has been invaluable to astronomy over the last three decades. The new photo is more than just pretty eye candy for people. It helps highlight more of M74’s structural elements, including which stars are heavier and older (pictured in cyan...
    A tiny red smudge caught in the distant background of the James Webb Space Telescope's first 'deep field' image could transform our understanding of the early universe, astronomers say. The inconspicuous blob is an ancient, unnamed galaxy that is 13.1 billion years old — only several hundred million years younger than the birth of the universe. Of all the galaxies captured in the image, it is the furthest away from Earth. It was captured in the deepest and sharpest infrared image of the distant universe ever recorded, and released to the world as part of the $10 billion (£7.4 million) observatory's first set of full colour pictures last week.  When researchers stretch out the light of an individual galaxy into a spectrum, they can learn about the chemical composition, temperature, and density of the galaxy’s ionised gas.  For example, this galaxy's spectrum will reveal the properties of its gas, which will indicate how its stars are forming and how much dust it contains.  Such information has never before been detected from this far away at this quality. Hidden secrets: A tiny red...
    Excitement is building today ahead of the release of the first set of unprecedented images from NASA's new James Webb Space Telescope. UK astronomers say they could include 'some of the most detailed and beautiful pictures of the universe ever seen' — with nebulae, an exoplanet and galaxy clusters all among the first objects captured. The images will offer a 'completely new perspective' of our place in the stars but will also be just 'the tip of the iceberg'. Scientists are feverishly excited about the unknown, with exoplanet specialist Dr Hannah Wakeford telling MailOnline: 'Who knows what it could discover? That is the most exciting thing.' US President Joe Biden yesterday unveiled a preview of the findings with the first full-colour picture from astronomy world's new $10 billion (£7.4 billion) super space observatory. It is the deepest, most detailed infrared view of the universe ever seen, containing the light from galaxies that has taken many billions of years to reach us. Webb's ultimate goal is to peer deeper back in time 13.5 billion years to a point within a mere 100-200 million years of...
    This is the moment Russian solders fled for their lives as they were attacked by a drone armed with thermal sights and bombs on a 'night hunt'. Footage captured by the drone, in service with Ukraine's 47th Motorised Infantry Battalion, shows four soldiers escaping into the woods - apparently after hearing the drone approaching.  The drone then drops two bombs on their comrades who stayed behind, killing at least three of them, according to Ukraine's military. It is not clear exactly where or when the footage was taken, but it comes amid bitter fighting in the Donbas region with Ukraine clinging on in one key city while launching counter-attacks further to the north.  Thermal footage shows a Ukrainian drone going on a 'night hunt' for Russian soldiers, sending four of them fleeing for their lives into the woods (pictured) The drone then drops bombs on the soldiers who stayed behind, killing three of them - according to a report from Ukraine's military Kyiv said Monday that its forces had been pushed back from the centre of Severodonetsk, where the heaviest fighting...
    CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida -- NASA's new space telescope is in the home stretch of testing, with science observations expected to begin in July, astronomers said Monday.The James Webb Space Telescope beamed back the latest test pictures of a neighboring satellite galaxy, and the results are stunning when compared with images taken by NASA's previous infrared observatory, the Spitzer Space Telescope.Each of the 18 mirror segments on the new telescope is bigger than the single one on Spitzer."It's not until you actually see the kind of image that it delivers that you really internalize and go 'Wow!'" said University of Arizona's Marcia Rieke, chief scientist for Webb's near-infrared camera. "Just think of what we're going to learn."Launched last December, the $10 billion Webb is the largest and most powerful astronomical observatory ever sent into space. It will seek light emitted by the first stars and galaxies close to 14 billion years ago, and keep a sharp lookout for possible signs of life.Scientists are keeping the identity of Webb's first official target a secret.Positioned 1 million miles from Earth, Webb is considered...
    NASA's Parker Solar Probe has captured its first visible light images of the surface of Venus. Using its Wide-Field Imager (WISPR) instrument, Parker imaged the entire nightside in wavelengths of the visible spectrum and extending into the near-infrared in two recent flybys. According to an agency release, the images show a faint glow, revealing distinctive features of the planet – as well as a halo of oxygen.  NASA ADMINISTRATOR DETAILS MISSIONS TO MOON, MARS, VENUS AND THE AGENCY'S EFFORTS ON EARTH While clouds obstruct most of the visible light coming from the surface, the longest visible wavelengths make it through.  On the dayside, the red light gets lost amid sunshine, but WISPR cameras were able to detect the glow from the heat emanating from the surface.  The cameras picked up a range of wavelengths from 470 nanometers to 800 nanometers, some of which are in the visible range and some of which are near-infrared.  The first images were taken in July 2020 on Parker's third flyby, prompting scientists to turn the cameras on again during its fourth pass in February...

    The highly anticipated launch of NASA’s $10 billion James Webb Space Telescope has been delayed yet again. The massive telescope is now set to take off on Christmas Day, December 25, with a launch window between 7:20AM ET and 7:52AM ET - the previous date was December 24. Live coverage will be shown on NASA's TV channel and website beginning Saturday at 6AM ET. NASA says stormy weather with high at Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana is to blame for yet another delay of the massive telescope that was initially set to venture into space in 2007.     Launch managers will meet again on Wednesday to assess the weather.  Scroll down for video The massive telescope is now set to take off on Christmas Day, December 25, with a launch window between 7:20AM ET and 7:52AM ET - the previous date was December 24.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami/CNN) — The use of invisible lasers in space may sound like something from science fiction, but it’s real. NASA’s upcoming Laser Communications Relay Demonstration (LCRD) could revolutionize the way the agency communicates with future missions across the solar system by using laser communications systems to transmit data from space to Earth.

Since 1958, NASA has used radio waves to communicate with its astronauts and space missions. While radio waves have a proven track record, space missions are becoming more complex and collecting more data than before. Think of infrared lasers as the optical communication version of high-speed internet, as opposed to frustratingly slow dial-up internet. Laser communications will send data to Earth from an orbit synchronous with the Earth’s rotation, 22,000 miles above Earth’s surface at 1.2 gigabits-per-second, which is like downloading an entire movie in...
    NASA has shared an incredible image of a colourful nebula that may just remind you of a certain fictional monster from Japan. The image, captured by the now-retired Spitzer Space Telescope, features bright spots 'like the piercing eyes and elongated snout' of Godzilla.  Often referred to as the 'king of the monsters', Godzilla has been the subject of the world's longest-running film franchise since its big screen debut in 1954.  This particular nebula, in the constellation Sagittarius in the Southern celestial hemisphere, is dotted with amazing kaleidoscopic colours that represent different wavelengths of infrared light.  ‹ Slide me › When viewed in visible light, the kind human eyes can detect, this nebula is almost entirely obscured by dust clouds. But infrared light - wavelengths longer than what our eyes can perceive - can penetrate the clouds, revealing its astonishing beauty A nebula is an enormous cloud of dust and gas occupying the space between stars and acting as a nursery for new stars.  Nebulae are formed when a star larger than our sun starts to die and gives off a solar-wind of gas. ...
    PLEASANTON (CBS SF) — The search for a jogger who went missing on Saturday near Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park continued Monday night with the help of an infrared drone. The operation has grown to include 13 agencies and nearly 200 volunteers, according to officials. The Pleasanton Police Department identified the missing jogger as 37-year-old Philip Kreycik. He was last seen on Saturday at around 10:45 a.m. near the regional park while preparing to go on a run.

    LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Using a high-tech drone equipped with a large thermal camera, one remote pilot has developed a way to save animals trapped under rubble or stuck in trees in disaster zones. Douglas Thron was a cinematographer on a film about animal rescue when he was inspired by the use of an infrared scope to find cats after fires. “I thought, ‘Imagine if we put this infrared scope on a drone, how many more animals you could actually find’,” said Thron in California’s Tujunga Canyon, where he was demonstrating the use of his drone. Douglas Thron was inspired by the use of an infrared scope to find cats after fires.Reuters The drone – which also has a spotlight and a zoom lens – has the advantage of not making loud noises that could distress animals, and can pinpoint injured or stranded creatures much faster than conventional techniques. Once an animal is located, Thron or a team can go in on foot to save it. Thron said he has been on the road for much of the last two...

    A British health official has come out against Gwyneth Paltrow after she promoted using “infrared” saunas and eating kimchi to fight the coronavirus. “In the last few days I see Gwyneth Paltrow is unfortunately suffering from the effects of COVID,” Professor Stephen Powis, the national medical director of England’s National Health Service, told the BBC on Wednesday.

    MASSAPEQUA PARK, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Two women are safe Friday after getting lost in a Long Island nature preserve. They say it was pitch dark and they could not find their way out of the woods. Thursday was a glorious November day for hiking and relaxing, and that’s exactly what two New York City women did, heading east to Massapequa Park. The preserve on Long Island is 423 acres and includes a lake, streams and numerous footpaths, many heavily wooded. “Especially if you’re disoriented, you can’t tell the difference between the larger trails and the smaller trail,” hiker Joe Gugliero told CBS2’s Jennifer McLogan. The sun was setting and the two Queens friends became confused and called 911. Aviation responded. “We launched from here at approximately 6:30 in the evening,” said Lt. Joe Grella, commanding officer of the Nassau County Police‘s Seventh Precinct. Nassau County Police used a helicopter with infrared night vision with heat-sourced technology to locate two lost hikers in Massapequa Park. (Credit: Nassau County Police) The women were in a panic.

    As the world struggles with the coronavirus, detecting whether or not someone is infected is one of the biggest challenges. The fastest test can return results in about 15 minutes, but in some cases results can take a week. With the inability to identify coronavirus outside a test, febrile screenings have become one of the only methods to quickly spot those who may have a symptom of the virus. As stores, restaurants, schools and offices reopen, they have turned to infrared technology to help identify fevers, one of the virus' primary symptoms. And essential workplaces and companies like Amazon have used thermal screening technology throughout the pandemic in an effort to help keep workers safe. Thermal cameras are nothing new. They were used in a similar manner during outbreaks of SARS, MERS and swine flu. Now, demand for infrared technology is at an all time high. The infrared camera market is expected to grow to $10 billion by 2026, up from $6 billion in 2019, according Global Market Insights. What was once a niche industry has suddenly been overwhelmed with...
