Today’s Video of the Day from NASA Goddard describes a new mission that has been launched to study the evolution of stars.
The UV Legacy Library of Young Stars as Essential Standards (ULLYSES) is the largest observation program ever designed for NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, which will survey more than 300 stars.
The ultraviolet (UV) light from both young stars in the Milky Way and fully mature high-mass stars in several nearby dwarf galaxies will be used to create a library of their spectral fingerprints.
