Latest Cosmic infrared background Stories
An experiment carried into space on a NASA sounding rocket has detected a diffuse cosmic glow that appears to represent more infrared light than is produced by the known galaxies in the universe.
New data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and NASA’s infrared Spitzer Space Telescope, has revealed that the early Universe may have contained more black holes than previously expected.
The faint, lumpy glow given off by the very first objects in the universe may have been detected with the best precision yet, using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. These faint objects might be wildly massive stars or voracious black holes.

A UK-led international team of astronomers have presented the first conclusive evidence for a dramatic surge in star birth in a newly discovered population of massive galaxies in the early Universe.
The discovery of a previously unresolved population of galaxies in the GOODS fields and the first measurements of properties of galaxies in the almost unexplored far-infrared domain are among the first exciting scientific results achieved by Herschel's PACS and SPIRE instruments.
