Nancy Grace Roman Telescope Will do its Own, Wide-Angle Version of the Hubble Deep Field - Universe Today

The Hubble's Deep and Ultra Deep Field images changed our understanding of the Universe. The Nancy Grace Roman telescope promises to do the same.

The upcomingThe NGRST’s previous name was WFIRST. That stands for Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope. NGRST will launch in the latter half of 2027 if everything goes according to plan. The Hubble launched in 1990, so there are almost 35 years between the two. Technology has progressed enormously in those intervening years, so the NGRST will be much more powerful and effective than the Hubble in many respects.

Windhorst (Arizona State University), and Z. Levay (STScI)The study’s title is “Deep Realistic Extragalactic Model (DREaM) Galaxy Catalogs: Predictions for a Roman Ultra-Deep Field.” The lead author is Nicole Drakos, a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California, Santa Cruz. The Astrophysical Journal will publish the study.
