WISE Spacecraft Launched

My previous blog post discussed the impending launch of the WISE spacecraft and infrared astronomy in general. I'm pleased to report that the WISE spacecraft was successfully launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California this morning at 6:09 a.m., Pacific time.

There are now three operational infrared missions: WISE, the Spitzer Space Telescope and the Herschel Space Observatory.
