NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope (Mission Overview)
After 16 years of unveiling the infrared universe, NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has left a singular legacy. As one of NASA’s four Great Observatories -- a series of powerful telescopes including Hubble, Chandra and Compton that can observe the cosmos in different parts of the electromagnetic spectrum --Spitzer quickly became a pioneer in the exploration of the worlds beyond our human vision. From stars being born to planets beyond our solar system (like the seven Earth-size planets around the star TRAPPIST-1), Spitzer's science discoveries will continue to inspire the world for many years to come.

NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope Turns 15
From newborn stars to black holes to galaxies to planets, Spitzer has been unveiling our galaxy for 15 years! Launched into a solar orbit on Aug. 25, 2003, Spitzer was the final of NASA's four Great Observatories to reach space. The space telescope has illuminated some of the oldest galaxies in the universe, revealed a new ring around Saturn, and peered through shrouds of dust to study newborn stars and black holes. Spitzer assisted in the discovery of planets beyond our solar system, including the detection of seven Earth-size planets orbiting the star TRAPPIST-1, among other accomplishments.

Homes Away From Home? Revisiting the Seven Planets of TRAPPIST-1
One year ago, astronomers announced the discovery that seven roughly Earth-sized worlds orbited around the nearby star TRAPPIST-1. Now a year later, additional data have refined our understanding of these planets.We now know more about the TRAPPIST-1 system than any other solar system other than our own.
Flight through Orion Nebula in infrared light
This visualisation explores the Orion Nebula as seen in infrared-light observations from NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope. This video is designed to be compared and contrasted against the companion movie using visible light observations from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. As the camera flies into the star-forming region, it reveals a glowing gaseous landscape that has been illuminated and carved by the high-energy radiation and strong stellar winds from the massive hot stars in the central cluster. The infrared observations generally show cool temperature gas at a deep layer that shows the full bowl shape of the nebula. In addition, the infrared showcases many faint stars that shine primarily at longer wavelengths. More information and download options: http://www.spacetelescope.org/videos/hubblecast106c/ Credit:

Brown Dwarf Weather Animation
This artist's concept animation shows a brown dwarf with bands of clouds, thought to resemble those seen on Neptune and the other outer planets in the solar system. By using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, astronomers have found that the varying glow of brown dwarfs over time can be explained by bands of patchy clouds rotating at different speeds. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory manages the Spitzer Space Telescope mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington. Science operations are conducted at the Spitzer Science Center at Caltech in Pasadena, California. Spacecraft operations are based at Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company, Littleton, Colorado. Data are archived at the Infrared Science Archive housed at the Infrared Processing and Analysis Center at Caltech. Caltech manages JPL for NASA.
TRAPPIST-1 Planets - Flyaround Animation
This video depicts artist's concepts of each of the seven planets orbiting TRAPPIST-1, an ultra-cool dwarf star. Over 21 days, NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope measured the drop in light as each planet passed in front of the star. Spitzer was able to identify a total of seven rocky worlds, including three in the habitable zone where life is possible. The study established the planets' size, distance from their sun and, for some of them, their approximate mass and density. It also established that some, if not all, these planets are tidally locked, meaning one face of the planet permanently faces their sun. The planets appear in the order of innermost to outermost planets. These artist's concepts were designed as follows: TRAPPIST-1b, closest to the star, was modeled on Jupiter's moon Io, which has volcanic features due to strong gravitational tugs. TRAPPIST-1c is shown as a rocky, warm world with a small ice cap on the side that never faces the star. TRAPPSIT-1d is rocky and has water only in a thin band along the terminator, dividing the day side and night side. TRAPPIST-1e and TRAPPIST-1f are both shown covered in water, but with progressively larger ice caps on the night side. TRAPPIST-1g is portrayed with an atmosphere like Neptune's, although it is still a rocky world. The farthest planet, TRAPPIST-1h, is shown as covered in ice, similar to Jupiter's icy moon Europa. The background stars are what you would see if you were in the TRAPPIST-1 system. Orion passes behind the planets, recognizable but distorted from what we’re familiar with, in addition to Taurus and Pleiades.

NASA & TRAPPIST-1: A Treasure Trove of Planets Found
Seven Earth-sized planets have been observed by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope around a tiny, nearby, ultra-cool dwarf star called TRAPPIST-1. Three of these planets are firmly in the habitable zone. Over 21 days, NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope measured the drop in light as each planet passed in front of the star. Spitzer was able to identify a total of seven rocky worlds, including three in the habitable zone, where liquid water might be found.
The video features interviews with Sean Carey, manager of the Spitzer Science Center, Caltech/IPAC; Nikole Lewis, James Webb Space Telescope project scientist, Space Telescope Science Institute; and Michaël Gillon, principal investigator, TRAPPIST, University of Liege, Belgium.
The system has been revealed through observations from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and the ground-based TRAPPIST (TRAnsiting Planets and PlanetesImals Small Telescope) telescope, as well as other ground-based observatories. The system was named for the TRAPPIST telescope.

ESOcast 96: Ultracool Dwarf and the Seven Planets
Astronomers have found a system of seven Earth-sized planets just 40 light-years away. Using ground and space telescopes, including ESO’s Very Large Telescope, the planets were all detected as they passed in front of their parent star, the ultracool dwarf star known as TRAPPIST-1. Three of the planets lie in the habitable zone and could harbour oceans of water on their surfaces, increasing the possibility that the star system could play host to life. This system has both the largest number of Earth-sized planets yet found and the largest number of worlds that could support liquid water on their surfaces. This ESOcasts describes the findings and shows a little of what they might mean. The artist’s impressions in this video are based on the known physical parameters for the planets and stars seen, and uses a vast database of objects in the Universe.

New Frontiers in Microlensing
The field of microlensing was pioneered as a method to find dark matter in the form of MACHOs but was rapidly repurposed as a planet-finding technique. The quest to find and characterize planetary signals has driven the field to high-cadence wide-field surveys and to space. I will review two exciting developments in microlensing: microlensing parallaxes with Spitzer, which probe the distribution of planets as a function of galactic environment, and the Korea Microlensing Telescope Network, which permits continuous monitoring of microlensing events to search for planets beyond the snow line. These projects are revolutionizing all aspects of the field of microlensing from the search for planets to the detailed characterization of complex lensing systems.

Two regions of star formation within the disk of Milky Way, IRAS 19340+2016 and IRAS19343+2026, resemble the original USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) and “Next Generation” Enterprise-D (NCC-1701-D). The image was assembled using data from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope with green colors highlighting organic molecules in the dust clouds and red colors related to thermal radiation emitted from the very hottest areas of dust. Credit:
NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, which launched Aug. 25, 2003, will begin an extended mission—the “Beyond” phase—on Oct. 1, 2016. This mission was designed to last at least two-and-a-half years;
13 years later, Spitzer has operated far beyond the scope of the original mission. Spitzer’s infrared vision has revealed the Universe in new ways, from mapping extrasolar planet temperatures, to discovering a ring around Saturn hundreds of times larger than any previously known.
Spitzer has also discovered tiny buckyball molecules in space, and produced a 360-degree infrared panorama of the Milky Way. For more information about the Spitzer Space Telescope, visit http://www.nasa.gov/spitzer
SPITZER - SPACE TELESCOPE
O nome do telescópio espacial Spitzer , vem de um astrofísico norte-americano, Lyman Spitzer, considerado um dos maiores cientistas do século XX, tornou-se notado pelas suas grandes contribuições no campo da dinâmica estelar, do plasma, da fusão termonuclear e da astronomia em geral. Foi a primeira pessoa a sugerir a colocação de telescópios no espaço e fez vários esforços para o desenvolvimento do telescópio orbital Hubble.

6. SOUDBITE: (Spanish) Dr. Sergio Fajardo Acosta, Astronomer:
"We are very hopeful that the Spitzer telescope will tell us around which stars there could be life. Then, the mission I mentioned called the Terrestrial Planet Finder will tell us which planets are similar to Earth and missions to Mars and other planets will tell us if there are bacteria or other more complex organisms there. The high point will be when we find another intelligent civilization. That is the great goal of NASA and we think it is feasible."
7. Animation showing observations captured by Spitzer telescope STORYLINE: NASA declared a new infra-red space telescope operational on Thursday - saying the observatory will rival the Hubble Telescope in probing deep into the heavens. NASA Administrator Sean O'Keefe also gave the telescope a new name - the Spitzer Space Telescope. The satellite is named after late Princeton astronomer Lyman Spitzer, who died in 1997. Spitzer was an early proponent of sending telescopes into space to get clearer pictures of the cosmos. O'Keefe also unveiled the first images taken by the (B) billion dollar instrument, showing a region of the universe where stars are being born - something that can't be seen well with conventional optical telescopes. The Spitzer telescope, which must be kept near at a temperature near absolute zero (minus 273 Celsius), was launched in August and is now more than five (M) million miles (eight (M) million kilometres) away from Earth. It's built for a five-year service life, but NASA scientists hope to keep it operating for even longer.

Saturn Family Tour
This video showcases the Saturnian system, beginning with the planet itself and panning out to its newest addition -- an enormous ring discovered in infrared light by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. The view starts with a simulated view of Saturn. It then moves outward, showing the orbits of many of Saturn's inner moons in green. The white lines show outer moons with orbits of varying inclinations. The yellow line shows the orbit of the moon Phoebe, which circles through the newfound ring, represented in tan. Both Phoebe and the outer ring orbit at an angle of 27 degrees from the main ring plane (they also orbit in the opposite direction of the other rings and most of the moons). The movie then zooms back into the system to show the orbit of the moon Iapetus in blue. Astronomers think that material from the outer ring is migrating in toward Iapetus, splattering its leading hemisphere. This would explain the moon's strange half-black, half-white appearance, first noted by Giovanni Cassini in the late seventeenth century.

Spitzer + Herschel: The Galactic Center Revisited [720p]
Hiding behind the constellations Sagittarius and Scorpius is the center of our own Milky Way galaxy, over 25,000 light years away. This patch of sky is mostly dark in visible light, shrouded by dust clouds that lie between us and the Galactic center. But the infrared vision of NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope sees through the dust showing us this strange and tumultuous region. The image spans about 5 degrees of sky, which is about half the width of your outstretched palm, but encompasses over 2,000 light years across our galaxy's core. Infrared light at 3.6 microns, which is mostly from stars, appears blue in the Spitzer image. Dust clouds glowing at 8 and 24 microns are rendered in green and red. The stars dramatically increase in numbers towards the center, swirling around a supermassive black hole astronomers think lies at the heart of it all. Infant stars pop out as glowing red dots, lit up by their warm dusty shrouds. They highlight the regions where stars are vigorously forming. These red shells and arcs show us where solar winds, flowing out from massive stars, light up as they slam into the surrounding interstellar gas. Dust clouds that are opaque even to Spitzer begin to glow as we shift our view to even longer infrared wavelengths. The European Space Agency's Herschel Space Observatory reveals the galaxy's dust clouds at wavelengths of 70 to 250 microns, about 10 times longer than what we saw in the Spitzer image. In this far infrared view, the colors we see indicate the overall temperature of the dust. Blue regions are the warmest, reaching typical room temperatures, while red indicates frigid dust only tens of degrees above absolute zero. Herschel has helped astronomers identify a spectacular structure, a dust ring that is over 600 light years across, encircling our galaxy's center. Viewed edge-on, its strange warped shape takes on the appearance of an infinity symbol, perhaps reminding us of how much we have yet to discover in our galaxy and beyond. credit: NASA / JPL-Caltech / ESA source: http://www.spitzer.caltech.edu/video-audio/1390-hiddenuniverse-036-The-Galactic-Center-Revisited-Gallery-Explorer-
Freethinkers are naturalistic. Truth is the degree to which a statement corresponds with reality. Reality is limited to that which is directly perceivable through our natural senses or indirectly ascertained through the proper use of reason.

Jimmy Fallon - Hubble Gotchu Response Video - Tim Crispy - Spitzer Picture
I'm a gigantic fan of the re-occurring Milky J character who loves the Hubble Space Telescope on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. His music video left me in stitches. I made a response music video/rip song about the Spitzer Space Telescope which is better than the Hubble. Do enjoy.

Spitzer Space Telescope: The Musical
A singing NASA supervisor uses song to explain about NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, and how infrared astronomy differs from visible-light telescopes like Hubble. Starring Danny Tieger ("My Universe Revolves Around You"), Buffy Henshaw ("Behind the Scenes: When Galaxies Collide"), and Tom Phillips as Flunky #2. To view more comedic (but educational!)

_________________________ LYRICS: Spitzer was launched in 2003
The 4th of NASA's Great Observatories
On an Earth-trailing orbit with its back to the sun
3 eyes to the sky with coolant for one.
Its 66 million miles away
Because the heat from the Earth would affect the display
Were talking sensitive instruments, keep it streaming on course
for its deep space heat-tracing gaze at the Universe CHORUS
Capturing the heat instead
There is light form the sky that we can't see
In the darkest parts of the galaxy
With Spitzer's spectrum
We can detect them
Easily Spitzers greatest gift to the viewing community
s the ability to see through the dust clouds that literally
Block the view of other telescopes
Unless that dust gets busted they stand no hope
Of seeing what we can, Were NASAs greatest addition
But you didnt hear it from me 'cause it aint a competition,
Yeah, were working together, combining forces for the mission
of a better sense of interstellar cosmic composition CHORUS Visible light Visible light
We can only see the stars if the stars shine bright
Infrared, (yeah) infrared
Depends on the energy in heat thats shed. Spitzers pulling pictures like the paparazzi
Though the coolant ran out, so we cant use all three
Weve got notable photos, and even bros know it shows
The secrets of Universe are fully exposed
Like some extrasolar planets, does get you a going
'Cause the heat from those planets has its own faint glowing
If there are half as many planets around the stars weve found
Its a million times more likely theyve got life spinning 'round
Am I blowing your mind? Are you listening to me?
Were the white coat crew that mapped our galaxy
So youre joining the team, thats hot in the head
Hooked on looking for the cooking bits of orange and red. CHORUS
Spitzer Podcast: The Many Views of the Milky Way (HD)
Source: http://www.spitzer.caltech.edu/features/hd The Many Views of the Milky Way: In May of 2009, the European Space Agency launched the Herschel Space Observatory, a new eye on the infrared universe. Its 3.5‐meter mirror is the largest ever put into space and reveals the far infrared sky with unprecedented clarity. This early Herschel observation shows a patch of sky in the constellation Crux. Warm Milky Way dust at a wavelength of 70 microns glows blue, while cooler dust at 160 microns is red. Pushing to the longest infrared wavelengths, we now see from 250 to 500 microns. The orangeish filaments trace the very coldest dust in our galaxy, only tens of degrees above absolute zero. These two images combine to make a spectacular ensemble spanning Herschels full
infrared range. NASAs Spitzer Space Telescope provides a strikingly different view of the same region. At much shorter wavelengths from 3.6 to 24 microns we see stars and the hot dust around stellar nurseries. Herschel and Spitzer work well together to provide complementary views of the universe. Note how the densest dust clouds appear dark and opaque to Spitzer but show up as red filaments to Herschel The combined Spitzer/Herschel image reveals the full range of cosmic dust temperatures, from the cold and red to the hot and blue. Together these two observatories give us the most complete view to date of the infrared universe.

Hypernova (pl. hypernovae) refers to an exceptionally large star that collapses at the end of its lifespan — for example, a collapsar, or a large supernova. Until the 1990s, it referred specifically to an explosion with an energy of over 100 supernovae (1046 joules); such explosions were proposed to explain the origin of exceptionally bright gamma ray bursts. An extensive sky search found several apparent hypernova remnants, but too few to support the hypothesis
Viewing the Universe w Infrared Eyes: The Spitzer Space Telescope
Dr. Giovanni Fazio, from the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory discusses the Spitzer Space Telescope. Launched on 25 August 2003, the telescope is producing an exciting new view of the Universe seen in infrared light. Spitzer is the fourth and final space telescope in NASA's Great Observatory series. It consists of an 85-cm telescope and three highly sensitive instruments capable of observing infrared light that allows astronomers to view regions of space invisible to optical telescopes. Spitzer's scientific results include the study of the formation and evolution of galaxies in the early Universe, understanding energy sources in ultraluminous galaxies, the study of star formation and evolution, observations of exoplanets and their atmospheres, and determining the structure and evolution of planetary disks around nearby stars. After a brief description of the Spitzer mission, results from Spitzer's extragalactic and galactic observational programs will be presented, showing many of Spitzers very spectacular images. This lecture was the 2009 Smithsonian Secretary's Distinguished Research Lecutre

Center of Our Galaxy Revealed by Hubble and Spitzer Space Telescopes
Hubble Space Telescope's Near Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer (NICMOS) joins forces with the Spitzer Space Telescope to peer deeper into the Milky Way's center. Hubble detected a new population of massive stars about 26,000 light-years away. Astronomers can use this data to study how these stars form and influence their environment.
