Spitzer Warm Mission Archive Science Opportunities


The rich data archive from the Spitzer cryogenic mission will be comprised of approximately 25 TB of data. A five-year warm mission would add an additional 15–20 TB. All of these data will be processed and archived to form homogeneous, reliable database to support research for decades after the end of the Spitzer mission. The SSC proposes a robust archival research program during the warm mission phase. A sampling of possible archival programs are described.
