The infrared Spitzer Space Telescope is the last of NASA’s Great Observatories. Highlights of the first results from the Infrared Spectrograph (IRS) Extragalactic Team are given. The main focus of this paper is a demonstration of the unprecedented sensitivity of the IRS, which makes observations of distant, dust enshrouded galaxies possible.
