Teledyne Technologies Incorporated announced today that its subsidiary, Teledyne Scientific & Imaging, LLC (TS&I), has a key role in NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE), with two of Teledyne's megapixel imaging sensors at the heart of the WISE infrared camera. The mission will be the most sensitive infrared survey ever made of the universe.

Telescope built at USU shows never-before-seen views of space

Spectacular new images of the universe are coming in, thanks to a new telescope designed and built in Utah.
Scientists have been stunned and delighted for two months, but they're only now beginning to share the pictures with the public.
It's a whole new way of looking at the universe: High-resolution infrared images of the entire sky from W.I.S.E., the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer that was designed, built and now celebrated at Utah State University.

A diverse cast of cosmic characters is showcased in the first survey images NASA released Wednesday from its Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE.
Since WISE began its scan of the entire sky in infrared light on Jan. 14, the space telescope has beamed back more than a quarter of a million raw, infrared images. Four new, processed pictures illustrate a sampling of the mission's targets -- a wispy comet, a bursting star-forming cloud, the grand Andromeda galaxy and a faraway cluster of hundreds of galaxies.

Sky-mapping scope spots first new asteroid

NASA's latest sky-mapping space telescope has found an asteroid never-before-seen from Earth, the first of hundreds of new objects the telescope is expected to find.
The near-Earth object, designated 2010 AB78, was discovered by NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE, on Jan. 12. The space rock doesn't appear to pose any threat to Earth, NASA officials said.

WISE needs your help!

Even if you aren't orbiting the Earth, you can still help WISE scientists find near-Earth objects (NEOs) and potentially hazardous asteroids (PHAs).
All you need is a telescope with a digital camera, a dark area to observe from, and a computer with an internet connection to look at your images and report your discoveries.

Infrared Hunt Begins: WISE Starts All-Sky Survey

NASA's Wide Field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) began its survey of the infrared sky today. The mission will spend nine months scanning the sky one-and-a-half times in infrared light, revealing all sorts of cosmic characters -- everything from near-Earth asteroids to young galaxies more than ten billion light-years away.
WISE, which launched Dec. 14, 2009, from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, will uncover hundreds of thousands of asteroids, and hundreds of millions of stars and galaxies. Its vast catalogue of data will provide astronomers and other missions with data for mine for decades to come.
