 Astrophysics & Space Sciences: Projects

BICEP Icon BICEP
BICEP (Background Imaging of Cosmic Extragalactic Polarization) is an experiment designed to measure the polarization of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) to unprecedented precision.

BICEP2 / Keck Array Icon BICEP2 / Keck Array
BICEP2 and Keck Array follow BICEP and probe more deeply in the polarization of the CMB.

BICEP3 Icon BICEP3
BICEP3 will provide the most sensitive map of the CMB & polarized foregrounds at 95 GHz at the spatial scales where the imprint of primordial Inflation may be found. It is supported by The Office of the Chief Scientist & Chief Technologist.

Euclid Icon Euclid
Euclid is a mission designed to study "dark energy", the hypothesized cause of the Universe's accelerated expansion.

Herschel Icon Herschel
The Herschel Space Observatory is a space-based telescope that studies the Universe in the light of the far-infrared and submillimeter portions of the spectrum.

Juno Icon Juno
Juno will fly to Jupiter and orbit its polar regions in order to understand the planet's gross size and structural properties, as well as measure Jupiter's atmospheric composition, temperature and deep wind profiles.

MIRO Icon MIRO
MIRO (Microwave Instrument for the Rosetta Orbiter) is a scientific instrument on the ROSETTA Spacecraft.

NuSTAR Icon NuSTAR
NuSTAR, launched in June 2012, is a pathfinder mission that has opened the high energy X-ray sky to sensitive study for the first time.

Planck Icon Planck
Planck is the first European mission to study the birth of the Universe. Planck was launched on May 14, 2009.

Solar Probe Plus Icon Solar Probe Plus
Solar Probe Plus will study the streams of charged particles the Sun hurls into space from a vantage point where the processes that produce the solar wind actually occur.

Spitzer Icon Spitzer
The Spitzer Space Telescope (formerly SIRTF, the Space Infrared Telescope Facility) was launched into space by a Delta rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida on 25 August 2003.

Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) Icon Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST)
The Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) is a NASA observatory designed to perform wide-field imaging and surveys of the near infrared (NIR) sky.

WISE Icon WISE
Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) is a four-channel, super-cooled infrared telescope designed to survey the entire sky with 1,000 times more sensitivity than previous infrared missions.

Rosetta Icon Rosetta
The Rosetta mission is designed to study the origin of comets, the relationship between cometary and interstellar material and its implications with regard to the origin of the Solar System.

CLASH Icon CLASH
Cluster Lensing And Supernova Survey with Hubble (CLASH) - An Innovative Survey to Place New Constraints on the Fundamental Components of the Cosmos using the Hubble Space Telescope

OMEGA Explorer Icon OMEGA Explorer
Using strong lensing to study the nature of Dark Matter
