Basketball Bracket in Shambles? Take the Long View

By Kelly Young

If your teams have already been upset in the NCAA basketball tournament, perhaps it's time for a little perspective.

Over 2 million infrared photos have been assembled to provide a 360-degree view of our galaxy, the Milky Way, courtesy of NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, launched in 2003. Interstellar dust blocks a lot of visible light from the stars in the galaxy, but infrared light can penetrate the dust and lets us Earthlings peer through the veil. The composite image covers about 3% of the sky but features more than half the stars in our galaxy and nearly all the star-formation activity.

A cosmic distraction for you.
