The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is currently finding new ways to solve space mysteries. It completed many space missions ever since it became active. 
Even during the pandemic, the popular space agency is still making unbelievable feats that many people thought would be impossible. And now, NASA developed a new space telescope called SPHEREx to solve the long mystery of the Big Bang theory.

This handout image of the giant, active galaxy NGC 1275, obtained August 21, 2008 was taken using the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope?s Advanced Camera for Surveys in July and August 2006. It provides amazing detail and resolution of fragile filamentary structures, which show up as a reddish lacy structure surrounding the central bright galaxy. These filaments are cool despite being surrounded by gas that is around 55 million ?C. 

According to CNET's latest report, the Big Bang Theory is a cosmological model, which describes how the current universe was created. This theory states that all the matter in the universe was compacted inside a very dense particle, which is smaller than the dot you can make with your pen or pencil. 

Before it exploded, there's was no time and universe existing. It made a huge explosion, leading all the galaxies to expand across the universe, thus giving it its name the Big Bang. 


NASA developed the car-sized space telescope to find if the Big Bang theory is true. It is specifically designed to know the origins of the existing galaxies today.

The new project already entered Phase C, which means that NASA can commence the final design phase and manufacturing of software and hardware.

In this handout image released from the Hubble Space Telescope the Whirlpool Galaxy is seen , April 25, 2005 released for the Hubble 15th anniversary. Nasa's Space Telescope has obited the Earth for 15 years and has taken more than 700,000 images of the comos. This image is one of the sharpest images Hubble has ever produced, taken with the newest camera.

The popular space agency also approved preliminary designs of the observatory. Engadget reported that SPHEREx will have the size of a subcompact car, which means it will be around 1.2 tons. It will also use instruments that separate near-infrared light into its component colors.

How NASA's SPHEREx will solve the Big Bang theory

NASA's new telescope data can reveal what stars and other celestial bodies are made of. It can also help scientists estimate their distance from Earth. The space agency plans to use the new technology to create a full-sky 3D spectroscopy map in near-infrared light. 

SPHEREx's goal is to find evidence of something called inflation. This event is believed to have taken place less than a billionth of a billionth of a second after the Big Bang. This information will help NASA astronomers and other scientists to map them in 3d relative to each other.
