WISE operates at an altitude of 525km, passing over the poles 15 times a day taking a picture every 11 seconds through its 40-cm (16-inch) telescope. Its mission is to deliver around 1,500,000 images of the entire sky in the infrared "with a sensitivity hundreds of times greater than ever before".
NASA expects to spot "millions of hidden objects, including asteroids, 'failed' stars and powerful galaxies". The data will serve as "navigation charts for other missions, such as NASA's Hubble and Spitzer Space Telescopes, pointing them to the most interesting targets the mission finds".

....is much more impressive than anything espoused by the made-up god myths.
to that, brother !
The basis of a Chemical Element is the number of PROTONS in the NUCLEUS.
The number of protons is commonly called the ATOMIC NUMBER and should be unique to all isotopes of that element.
For example HYDROGEN (in its most common isotope) has 1-P 0-N 1-E
One proton, zero neutrons and one electron.
Oxygen, Atomic Number 8.
therefore it has .. count 'em, 8 Protons and the isotopes have varying numbers of neutrons.
There are 8 electrons in two shells (shell 1=2, and shell 2=6).
The common isotope is Oxygen16 and has 8-P, 8-N, 8-E
Shove one of them together with two hydrogen and you have a substance which is found to exist to a high degree all over the world, it promotes decay in ferrous metals and can cause death by asphyixiation, its called Dihydro Monoxide.
