Microsoft offered a new resource of desktop customizations for the Windows 7 operating system, through the Windows Personalization Gallery the “NASA Hidden Universe theme for Windows 7” promises to deliver “A universe filled with colors from NASA,” according to the short description of the theme. “A universe filled with kaleidoscopic colors blazes across your desktop in this theme for Win7, revealed by infrared imaging of NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. Discover more about Spitzer's unique view of stars, nebulae, and galaxies on Spitzer Space Telescope website,” reads the description. “Spitzer Space Telescope consists of a 0.85-meter diameter telescope and three cryogenically-cooled science instruments which’l perform imaging & spectroscopy in 3 - 180 micron wavelength range. Since infrared’s primarily heat radiation, detectors’re most sensitive to infrared light when they’re kept extremely cold. While Spitzer's mission lifetime requirement remains 2.5 years, recent developments have brought a 5-year mission within reach. Spitzer launched on 25 August 2003,” reads an excerpt from NASA’s Spitzer Technology Overview.”
