Hidden in time and space

A survey of different areas of space using several space and ground based telescopes together has allowed the Herschel Infrared Space Telescope to show off its resolving power by pin-pointing 1,100 distant galaxies previously only seen as an infrared fog. The Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey, or GOODS, involves observations by NASA‘s Chandra (x-ray), Hubble (visible-UV) and Spitzer (infrared) as well as ESA‘s Herschel (infrared) and XMM-Newton (x-ray) space observatories. Ground based observations were carried out at ESO and NOAO sites.

Meanwhile, the history of astronomy, obscured by clouds of time, has been dredged up for a few podcasts over on Universe Today.
