This paper summarizes contributions and suggestions as presented at the Chandra workshop “Star Formation in the Era of Three Great Observatories” conducted in 2005 July. One of the declared goals of the workshop was to raise recognition within the star formation research community about the sensible future utilization of the space observatories Spitzer, HST, and Chandra in their remaining years of operation to tackle imminent questions in our understanding of stellar formation and the early evolution of stars. A white paper was generated to support the continuous and simultaneous usage of observatory time for star formation research. The contents of this paper have been presented and discussed at several other meetings during the course of 2005 and in 2006 January.
