15 Greatest Discoveries from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope

12. Comet soup

On July 4, 2005, NASA spacecraft smashed having the cloud of material and also the parts of our solar System and named as soup.

Spitzer ascertained the implications of the collision between NASA’s Deep Impact satellite and comet Temple one and located that the comet material in our own solar system resembles that of close stars. Eventually planets, comics and part of the solar system produced from this Soup. Silicates, carbonates, clay, seashell, Iron compounds, hydrocarbon also founded in soup. These elements are part of our solar system.

11. Rings of Saturn

Spitzer has lit up a portion of the most established cosmic systems in the universe, uncovered another ring around Saturn, and looked through covers of residue to ponder infant stars. Saturn consists of rings and has different particles.

Spritzer used infrared light to discover images so infrared light penetrates deeply and detects the cool dust particles in the ring of Saturn and the temperature of these particles is – 193 degree Celsius which is 80 Kelvin.

10. Buckyballs in space

Buckyballs are football-shaped carbon molecules that are discovered in laboratory analysis with many technological applications on Earth. Buckyballs are hexagon Pentagonal bodies. Spitzer discovered them the first time in space.

Buckyballs worked as the blanket for a dying star, also for nebula, Tc 1. Spitzer justified the astronomer’s view about Buckyballs that they are made up of carbon
