The Cosmic Origins Spectrograph (COS) instrument will be placed in the Hubble Space Telescope during Service Mission 4. It's primary science objectives are the study of the origins of large scale structure in the Universe, the formation and evolution of galaxies, the origin of stellar and planetary systems, and the cold interstellar medium. This animation zooms out from our Milky Way galaxy to show the cosmic web, or large scale structure of the Universe.

Datasets used in this visualization

HST (Collected with the WFPC2 sensor)

Wide-Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) was installed in Dec 1993 and used to obtain high resolution images of astronomical objects. This camera was removed in the last servicing mission so it is no longer in service.

Dataset can be found at: http://www.stsci.edu/hst/wfpc2/wfpc2_diag.html
