Exploring the Distant Universe With the Spitzer Space Telescope


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.

I also thank Dr Roland Allen for inviting me to speak at the conference. The conference was excellent and my thanks to all those that helped make it a success. I look forward to the Second Mitchell Symposium. We thank the IRS team and Spitzer Science Center for their continued dedication to the success of the SST mission. This work is based (in part) on observations made with the Spitzer Space Telescope, which is operated by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology under NASA contract 1407. Support for this work was provided by NASA through contract 1257184, issued by JPL/Caltech.
