SOFIA air-to-air over the Sierra Nevada Mountains
Project Description

With the sliding door over its 17-ton infrared telescope wide open, NASA's Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy – or SOFIA – soars over California's snow-covered Southern Sierras on a test flight.

Deuterated Hydroxyl as a Star Formation Tracer
Project Description

The two-component OD absorption spectrum from GREAT superposed on a three-color image of W49A; SOFIA-FORCAST 20 μm (blue), SOFIA-FORCAST 37 μm (green), and Herschel-PACS 70 μm (red). Stars are from Spitzer-IRAC 3.6 μm (white). The plus sign marks the position of the spectrum.

Event Type

We present results of a wide-field (approximately 60 x 90 pc) ALMA mosaic of CO(2-1) and 13CO(2-1) emission from the molecular cloud associated with the 30 Doradus star-forming region. Three main emission complexes, including two forming a bowtie-shaped structure extending northeast and southwest from the central R136 cluster, are resolved into complex filamentary networks.
