Get to know SOFIA, the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, which recently helped scientists find water on the Moon. SOFIA is a specially-modified Boeing 747SP aircraft that carries a very powerful 106-inch reflecting telescope.
Soaring above 40,000 feet allows astronomers to study the Universe in ways that are not possible from the ground. What have scientists discovered from SOFIA’s views beyond Earth’s atmosphere? Learn more about this unique telescope and its role in research from NASA’s Dr. Backman.
