Amazing footage of what interstellar flight through Milky Way looks like (VIDEO)
The Spitzer telescope also operates in the infrared light spectrum that easily penetrates the dust. Since becoming operable in 2003, the telescope has made gigabytes of high-resolution images of space and in particular our galaxy, the Milky Way, made in multiple wavelengths of light.
The photos used in the video were taken by the Spitzer telescope during NASA’s ‘Glimpse Project’ and ‘MIPSGAL Project.’
To make this video, daveachuk processed and animated over 400,000 Spitzer photos to present a completely new view of space.
