At Vandenberg Air Force Base's Astrotech processing facility in California, workers maneuver the overhead crane that will lift NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE, spacecraft from the travel dolly to a work stand. The satellite will survey the entire sky at infrared wavelengths, creating a cosmic clearinghouse of hundreds of millions of objects, which will be catalogued, providing a vast storehouse of knowledge about the solar system, the Milky Way, and the universe. Launch is scheduled no earlier than Dec. 10. Photo credit: NASA/Moore, VAFB
