Astronomers using data from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope have looked for dust-extinguished supernovae in the nuclear regions of 40 luminous and ultra-luminous infrared galaxies within 200 Mpc (652 million light-years). “Our results with Spitzer show that the optical surveys we’ve long relied on for detecting supernovae miss up to half of the stellar explosions happening out [...]

Recently, a pair of NASA studies identified the most likely locations to find pieces of the Moon's mantle on the surface, providing a map for future lunar sample return missions such as those under NASA's Artemis program. If collected and analyzed, these fragments from deep within the Moon can provide a better understanding of how the Moon, the Earth, and many other solar system worlds evolved.
