NASA's new satellite named WISE will map the sky in infared light searching for the nearest and coolest stars, the origins of steller and planetary
systems, and the most luminous galaxies in the Universe.
Launch is set for Friday December 11th.
Wise will orbit the Earth 15 times a day and take 7,500 images a day in infared.
NASA'S Wide-field infared survey Explorer will provide a map to the universe's hidden treasures.
