Destination Innovation is a new series that explores the research, science and other projects underway at the NASA Ames Research Center. Episode 2 focuses on the SOFIA Mission, an airborne telescope that uses infrared astronomy to peer deeper into the Universe than ever before. SOFIA, or the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, is NASA’s highly-modified Boeing 747SP aircraft wit

Astronomers from the University of Arizona have discovered a distant exoplanet with a set of characteristics so bizarre that they say it should not even exist. With a mass about 11 times that of Jupiter and an orbit about 650 times greater than the average Earth-Sun distance, newfound planet HD 106906 b, the UA astronomers say, is throwing a wrench into existing planet-formation theories. &q

A free-floating planet is generating some out-of-this-world buzz. While most planets orbit a host star, like the Earth revolves around the sun, an international team of scientists recently spotted a planet without a star. The extrasolar planet, dubbed PSO J318.5-22, appears to be drifting through space. "We have never before seen an object free-floating in space that looks like this,&qu

Mario Lanza (Jan 31, 1921 - Oct 7, 1959) was a great American Tenor. The son of ITALIAN immigrants, he began studying to be a professional singer at the age of 16. In 1947, he signed a contract with MGM’s head - Louis B Mayer, who was impressed with his extensive range and resonance. Mario Lanza died at the age of 38, and was considered the most famous tenor in the world. I have selected the

This segment looks at the state of astronomy before Hubble and the difficulties of observing from the ground that drove the need for a space telescope. Astronomers instrumental in the Hubble project in the 60s and 70s reflect on how the design of the telescope was forced to evolve because methods used by ground-based observatories weren’t practical in space.

Astronomy changed on April 24th, 1990, with the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope. Perched high above the Earth’s atmosphere, no other scientific instrument has had a greater impact on how we view our place in the universe. Hubble has given us unprecedented views of the cosmos: from detailed images of planets in our solar system to the most distant galaxies ever seen. For almost 25 yea

In this episode Dr J answers a selection of the questions that were specifically about Hubble itself.

Mercury, the closest planet to the Sun, remains somewhat of a mystery to us. In the past, because of its proximity to the Sun, it has been difficult for Earth-based telescopes to observe Mercury against the ferocious solar light. In 2016, to increase our understanding of this mysterious planet, Europe is launching BepiColombo, the first dedicated mission to Mercury. It will reach its destinatio

NASA’s Swift satellite rode to orbit aboard a Delta II rocket on November 20, 2004, and it’s still going strong. Swift’s unique instrumentation allows it to quickly locate an interesting high-energy outburst, automatically determine its position, and rapidly investigate it with ultraviolet, optical, and X-ray telescopes. Swift’s versatility has led to amazing observations a

Since February 2011, the two spacecraft of NASA’s the Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory or STEREO mission have been providing scientists with unprecedented views of the far side of the sun. The spacecraft travel at different speeds. This means that over time, the satellites become increasingly out of sync, appearing from Earth’s perspective to drift farther apart, able to obse

NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope has helped astronomers confirm the discovery of the nearest rocky planet outside our solar system. The planet, called HD 219134b, is a bit larger than Earth and located a mere 21 light-years away in the Cassiopeia constellation, near the North Star. While HD 219134b orbits too close to its star to sustain life, it is the closest exoplanet to Earth to be detected tr

A series of images taken between November 2013 to April 2015 with the Gemini Planet Imager (GPI) on the Gemini South telescope in Chile shows the exoplanet Beta Pic b orbiting the star Beta Pictoris, which lies over 60 light-years from Earth. In the images, the star is at the centre of the left-hand edge of the frame; it is hidden by the Gemini Planet Imager’s coronagraph. We are looking at the

This simulation shows the 22-year journey of a star moving through space and passing directly in front of a more distant background star. All stars drift through space. Occasionally, a star lines up perfectly in front of a more distant star. The momentary alignment magnifies and brightens the light from the background star, an effect called gravitational microlensing. In April 2005, ground-base
