The Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope
Today’s Video of the Day from NASA introduces the Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST), an infrared space observatory that is being developed.
The wide field imaging capability of the spacecraft’s giant camera will give WFIRST 100 times the field of view of Hubble, but with the same angular resolution.
The observatory will be used to survey the universe from beyond the orbit of the Moon, imaging exoplanets and unraveling the secrets of dark energy and dark matter.
