    NASA's newest mission will study the origins of the universe

     

    By Ashley Strickland, CNN

    Updated 2225 GMT (0625 HKT) February 13, 2019

     

    https://edition.cnn.com/2019/02/13/world/nasa-new-mission-spherex/index.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+rss%2Fcnn_world+%28RSS%3A+CNN+-+World%29

     

    Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 – Of all the NASA missions,

    none has visited as many planets, rings and moons as the twin Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 spacecraft,

     which were launched in 1977.

    Each probe is much farther away from Earth and the sun than Pluto.

    In August 2012, Voyager 1 made the historic entry into interstellar space, the region between stars.

    Scientists hope to learn more about this region when Voyager 2 reaches interstellar space.

    Both spacecraft are still sending scientific information back to NASA.

    (CNN)

    NASA has announced a two-year space mission to study the beginnings and evolution of the universe and

    determine how common the ingredients for life are within the planetary systems in our galaxy, the Milky Way.

    Curiosity Mars Rover – This image shows the Curiosity rover doing a test drill on a rock dubbed "Bonanza King" to see if it would be a good place to dig deeper and take a sample. 

    Curiosity was launched in 2011, and it is the most advanced rover ever built.

    It's helping scientists determine whether Mars is, or ever was, habitable for life forms.

    Kepler – The Kepler space observatory is the first NASA mission dedicated to finding Earth-size planets in or near the habitable zones of stars. Launched in 2009,

    Kepler has been detecting planets and planet candidates with a wide range of sizes and orbital distances. Yes, we are still finding new planets.


    NEOWISE – NASA's infrared-wavelength space telescope called NEOWISE may help make us safer.

    The space telescope hunts for asteroids and comets, including those that could pose a threat to Earth.

    During its planned three-year survey through 2016, NEOWISE will identify near-Earth objects, gather data on their size and take other measurements.

    The probe was launched on December 14, 2009, for its original mission -- to perform an all-sky astronomical survey.

    The probe was put in hibernation for several years, but it was fired up again in December 2013 to hunt for asteroids.

     Its images are now available to the public online.



    Dawn – NASA's Dawn spacecraft began orbiting the dwarf planet Ceres in March. Scientists were surprised by the large white spots shining on Ceres, seen above.

    On its way to Ceres, Dawn spent time studying the proto-planet Vesta in 2001. Ceres and Vesta are the two most massive bodies in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.

    The mission, launched in 2007, is giving scientists new knowledge of how the solar system formed and evolved.



    Deep Impact/EPOXI – NASA's Deep Impact spacecraft was launched on January 12, 2005, and it travelled 268 million miles (431 million kilometers)

    to hurl its coffee table-sized probe into comet Tempel 1 on July 4, 2005.

    This image of Tempel 1 was taken by Deep Impact's camera 67 seconds after the probe hit the comet.

     Scattered light from the collision saturated the camera's detector and caused the bright splash seen in this image.

    The Deep Impact mission was supposed to end a few weeks later, but NASA approved an extension and renamed the spacecraft EPOXI and sent it on to fly by Comet Hartley 2 in November 2010.

    The probestopped communicating with mission managers in September 2013 and was declared lost.



    Cassini – The Cassini spacecraft ended its mission in 2017. The probe was launched on October 15, 1997, from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

    It arrived at Saturn on June 30, 2004. The spacecraft dropped a probe called Huygens to the surface of Saturn's moon Titan.

    It was the first landing on a moon in the outer solar system.


    Stardust – The Stardust spacecraft was launched on February 7, 1999, from Cape Canaveral, Florida. After traveling 3.5 billion miles (5.6 billion kilometers),

     the spacecraft made history by capturing images of asteroid Annefrank and collecting samples of comet Wild 2 and successfully returning them to Earth.

    It also took spectacular images of comet Tempel 1. The probe's mission ended on March 25, 2011, when mission managers put it in safe mode and turned off the transmitter for the last time.



    Surveyor – Surveyor 1 was the first U.S. spacecraft to make a soft landing on the Moon.

    The program ran during the mid-1960s and was declared a success.

    The program's focus eventually switched to support of the Apollo program.



    Explorer 1 – A model of Explorer 1, America's first satellite, is held by, from left, NASA official William Pickering, scientist James Van Allen and rocket pioneer Wernher von Braun.

    The team was gathered at a news conference at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington to announce the satellite's successful launch.

     It had been launched a few hours before, on January 31, 1958.


    SPHEREx, the Spectro-Photometer for the History of the Universe, Epoch of Reionization and Ices Explorer,

    will study the beginning and evolution of the universe and determine how common the ingredients for life are within the planetary systems found in our galaxy, the Milky Way.

    It is targeted to launch in 2023.

    NASA's Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite launched in April and is already identifying exoplanets orbiting the brightest stars just outside our solar system.

    In the first three months since it began surveying the sky in July, it has found three exoplanets, with the promise of many more ahead.

    Breakthrough Starshot – This illustration shows light beams from Earth pushing a tiny spacecraft's sail. The proposed Breakthrough Starshot project would send hundreds of "nanocraft" space probes 4.37 light years away -- at speeds of up to 100 million miles an hour -- to to explore Alpha Centauri, our nearest star system. The ambitious project is many years away from becoming reality.

    New Horizons – No spacecraft had ever gone to Pluto before NASA's New Horizons made its fly-by on July 14, 2015. The probe sent back amazing, detailed images of Pluto and its largest moon, Charon. It also dazzled scientists with new information about Pluto's atmosphere and landscape. New Horizons is still going today, heading out into the Kuiper Belt.


    Weird new species, feathered fossils and salt in space: This week in space and science

     

    (CNN)NASA has announced a two-year space mission to study the beginnings and evolution of the universe and determine how common the ingredients for life are within the planetary systems in our galaxy, the Milky Way.

    The Spectro-Photometer for the History of the Universe, Epoch of Reionization and Ices Explorer, nicknamed SPHEREx, is expected to launch in 2023 and has been funded at $242 million -- not including launch costs.

    "This amazing mission will be a treasure trove of unique data for astronomers," said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for NASA's Science Mission Directorate. "It will deliver an unprecedented galactic map containing 'fingerprints' from the first moments in the universe's history. And we'll have new clues to one of the greatest mysteries in science: What made the universe expand so quickly less than a nanosecond after the big bang?"

    SPHEREx will use near-infrared light, as well as optical, to survey the sky every six months and collect data from more than 100 million stars in the Milky Way, as well as 300 million galaxies. These are galaxies in our cosmic neighborhood along with some that are so distant, it's taken 10 billion years for their light to reach our telescopes.

    The technology used to create SPHEREx has been adapted from what is used on our satellites and Mars spacecraft, NASA said in a statement.

    While surveying the Milky Way, SPHEREx will search for organic molecules and water in areas where stars are born, called stellar nurseries. These nurseries, as well as disks around stars that help form new planets, could contain the ingredients for life as we know it. Recently, surprising things such as salt have been found in these areas.

    The mission's result should create a sky map using 96 varied color bands with more resolution than any previous sky maps. And like other NASA missions, SPHEREx can also help identify targets for upcoming missions such as the James Webb Space Telescope.

    "I'm really excited about this new mission," NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said in the statement. "Not only does it expand the United States' powerful fleet of space-based missions dedicated to uncovering the mysteries of the universe, it is a critical part of a balanced science program that includes missions of various

     sizes."
