Bleeping Computer: Hackers hide malware in James Webb telescope images

Bleeping Computer: Hackers hide malware in James Webb telescope images. “The malware is written in Golang, a programming language that is gaining popularity among cybercriminals because it is cross-platform (Windows, Linux, Mac) and offers increased resistance to reverse engineering and analysis. In the recent campaign discovered by researchers at Securonix, the threat actor drops payloads that are currently not marked as malicious by antivirus engines on the VirusTotal scanning platform.”

NASA: How to Follow Webb’s Next Steps

NASA: How to Follow Webb’s Next Steps. “Now that NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope’s first images and data are out, you might be wondering: What comes next? The observatory has a packed schedule of science programs looking at all kinds of cosmic phenomena, like planets, stars, galaxies, black holes, and more. Webb will revolutionize our understanding of the universe — but first, researchers need time to analyze data and make sure that they understand what they’re seeing.”

CNET: NASA’s Webb Space Telescope Stuns With Deepest Infrared Image of the Universe Yet

CNET: NASA’s Webb Space Telescope Stuns With Deepest Infrared Image of the Universe Yet. “Today, as of July 11, 2022, our horizon expands once more. One hundred years of progress – in telescopy, astronomy, astrophysics, engineering, rocket science, mathematics, hell, even streaming online video – has led to NASA unveiling the first image obtained by the James Webb Space Telescope.”

Mashable: How to watch NASA reveal the first stunning James Webb telescope images

Mashable: How to watch NASA reveal the first stunning James Webb telescope images. “The James Webb Space Telescope, a powerful $10 billion observatory run by NASA, the European Space Agency, and the Canadian Space Agency, has chilled down to its optimal temperature. Engineers have finished calibrating its scientific instruments. Now the telescope with a 21-foot-diameter mirror is open for business. Get ready for stunning astronomical photos and data, scientists say.”

James Webb Space Telescope: How To See Webb’s First Images!

James Webb Space Telescope: How To See Webb’s First Images! . “The public release of Webb’s first images and spectra is July 12 – now less than two weeks away! The Webb team has confirmed that that 15 out of 17 instrument modes are ready for science, with just two more still to go. As we near the end of commissioning, we wanted to let you know where you can see the first Webb science data and how to participate in the celebration of Webb science!”

NASA: New Images Using Data From Retired Telescopes Reveal Hidden Features

NASA: New Images Using Data From Retired Telescopes Reveal Hidden Features. “New images using data from ESA (European Space Agency) and NASA missions showcase the dust that fills the space between stars in four of the galaxies closest to our own Milky Way. More than striking, the snapshots are also a scientific trove, lending insight into how dramatically the density of dust clouds can vary within a galaxy.”

Space: How to watch NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope launch online in several languages on Christmas Eve

Space: How to watch NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope launch online in several languages on Christmas Eve. “The James Webb Space Telescope is the successor to NASA and Europe’s iconic Hubble Space Telescope. The next-generation capabilities of the upcoming observatory, paired with the laundry list of mission delays over the last several years, makes this a highly-anticipated event across the astronomical community.”

Galactic fireworks: New ESO images reveal stunning features of nearby galaxies (EurekAlert)

EurekAlert: Galactic fireworks: New ESO images reveal stunning features of nearby galaxies. “A team of astronomers has released new observations of nearby galaxies that resemble colourful cosmic fireworks. The images, obtained with the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (ESO’s VLT), show different components of the galaxies in distinct colours, allowing astronomers to pinpoint the locations of young stars and the gas they warm up around them.”

Space: Huge new catalog of ultrabright ‘fast radio bursts’ may shed light on the structure of the universe

Space: Huge new catalog of ultrabright ‘fast radio bursts’ may shed light on the structure of the universe. “If human eyes could see radio waves, the night sky would periodically light up with flashes thanks to fast radio bursts (FRBs). It would, that is, if we looked quick: These pulses last less than a blink of an eye and then vanish without a trace…. This new catalog of FRBs, which was described on June 9 during a presentation at the 238th meeting of the American Astronomical Society (AAS), is allowing scientists to ask big-picture questions about the structure of the universe.”
