  • The JADES team has announced their third data release (DR3), which provides new, multi-band images in the GOODS-North field, including the iconic Hubble Deep Field region. It also includes more than 4,000 unique NIRSpec/MSA spectra in both the GOODS-North and GOODS-South fields, together with 2,000 measured redshifts. Most of the spectra span the full wavelength range of NIRSpec from 0.7 to 5 microns, and use two spectral resolutions: observations at R~100 with the double-pass prism for high sensitivity and continuum science, and observations with the medium-resolution gratings (R~1,000) to study the detailed properties of emission lines. The release includes the longest on-source NIRSpec observations to date, reaching 70 hours for the highest-priority targets! The spectra of galaxies such as GN-z11, GS-z11-0, and GS-z12-0 reveal the surprising physical properties of galaxies in the earliest phases of the Universe, back to just 350 million years after the Big Bang. The products also include image previews of the NIRSpec spectra, like the example of GN-z11 shown at the right.

  • OPAL: The Outer Planet Atmosphere Legacy Survey has released HST Observations of Jupiter from Cycle 30. This project now includes 9 years of observations of Jupiter's atmosphere.
  • QLP (Quick Look Pipeline) adds calibrated light curves from TESS full frame images. Sector 71 is now available, adding 845,012 targets to this collection.
  • TICA, offering quick-look, calibrated TESS full frame images has now added all of Sector 78 to its collection.
In the top half of the iamge, the graph rises sharply around an observed frame of z=1.5, after which it declines exponentially. A note in the upper right indicates the target is at z=10.606. The bottom half of the image gives the corresponding signal-to-noise ratio over the range of the observed frames, which starts at a maximum of 10 and tapers off to background levels around λ = 5.
