WISE has launched!


WISE – the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, a mission to perform an all sky survey from 3.5 to 23 microns – has successfully launched and separated from the launch vehicle. Having gone through this stressful experience for the Herschel and Planck launch in May I know how good the WISE team must be feeling at this point!

For more information about WISE and the science it will produce, see the team webpages and for a movie of the launch and other details see the NASA WISE pages.

Congratulations to the WISE team! The real work starts now!
