Spitzer The Spitzer Space Telescope is an infrared observatory, the fourth and last of the "Great Observatories" which was inaugurated with the Hubble. Spitzer is in a sun-centric orbit, and was launched August 25th, 2003. Formerly known as SIRTF, Spitzer is a project with a considerable history (pre-dating me!).

Spitzer ran out of cryogen in May, 2009, and continues to operate at short wavelengths during the warm mission.

I am involved with many ongoing Spitzer projects, including the Legacy program SINGS, numerous general observer programs, parts of the IRS Guaranteed Time program, and others.

A partial list of successful Spitzer GO, GTO, and DDT proposals which I have lead or have collaborated on:
