This infrared image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope shows three baby stars in the bustling center of our Milky Way galaxy. The three stars are the first to be discovered in the region. This artist's concept illustrates how silicate crystals like those found in comets can be created by an outburst from a growing star. The image shows a young sun-like star encircled by its planet-forming disk of gas and dust. Here we see two different views of the spiral galaxy, Messier 81. On the left is an image taken in blue light, while on the right is a specially-processed version of an image taken with the Spitzer's infrared array camera (IRAC) at 4.5 microns. This image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope shows the spiral galaxy NGC 2841, located about 46 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Ursa Major. The galaxy is helping astronomers solve one of the oldest puzzles in astronomy. NASA's Galaxy Evolution Explorer Mission celebrates its sixth anniversary studying galaxies beyond our Milky Way through its sensitive ultraviolet telescope, the only such far-ultraviolet detector in space.

Vivid View of Tycho's Supernova Remnant Quartz-like Crystals Found in Planetary Disks NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope captured this picture of comet Holmes in March 2008, five months after the comet suddenly erupted and brightened a millionfold overnight. Stellar Work of Art Supernova Flashback Laser-Sharp Jet Splits Water Spitzer Reveals Stellar 'Family Tree' Spitzer Reveals Stellar 'Family Tree' Pinwheel Looks 'Fab' in Infrared 'Peony Nebula' Star Settles for Silver Medal Super Starburst Galaxy This artist's concept illustrates the new view of the Milky Way. The galaxy's two major arms can be seen attached to the ends of a thick central bar, while the two now-demoted minor arms are less distinct and located between the major arms.
