NASA Views of the Cosmos with the New and Improved AstroPix

NASA's Universe of Learning has relaunched a wonderful resource for exploring the Universe: AstroPix! AstroPix website improvements and a new user-friendly search function provide enhanced access to a universe of imagery for use in the learning environment or simply for your own enjoyment and exploration.

The site contains 10,000+ astronomy images from a variety of NASA missions and ground-based observatories that, together, offer a multiwavelength view of the cosmos. Image layouts provide visual access to titles, captions, color/wavelength keys, and coordinates provided by each mission/observatory. Explore AstroPix to find just the right space image for a variety of applications.  

AstroPix is part of NASA's Universe of Learning project, which creates and delivers science-driven, audience-driven resources and experiences designed to engage and immerse learners of all ages and backgrounds in exploring the Universe for themselves.

NASA’s Universe of Learning materials are based upon work supported by NASA under cooperative agreement award number NNX16AC65A to the Space Telescope Science Institute, working in partnership with Caltech/IPAC, Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian, and NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The award is part of NASA’s Science Activation program, which strives to further enable NASA science experts and content into the learning environment more effectively and efficiently with learners of all ages.
