DDT proposal submission is different from regular proposal submission, and does not use Spot. You should submit your DDT proposal by following the instructions in the proposal kit: http://ssc.spitzer.caltech.edu/warmmission/propkit/ [http://ssc.spitzer....
No, only low-impact (> 8 weeks) ToOs can be proposed as part of the GO Call in the warm mission. High/medium-impact ToOs (< 8 weeks) can only be submitted as Director's Discretionary Time (DDT) proposals.
Our observatory should be called Spitzer (in italics if in a formal setting and if you have the capability, e.g., Spitzer), not the acronym "SST," and not "SIRTF," even though our name still begins with an "S." Spitzer is not an acronym itself, so it shou...
DO YOU HAVE A REALLY GOOD REASON FOR WANTING TO DO THIS? We do allow observations longer then 24 hours if scientifically justified, but we really do prefer shorter observations in order to do spacecraft calibrations on a routine schedule. The maximum du...
Yes, there is a pair of figures, and both figures actually appear in the Spitzer Observer's Manual (SOM) (in addition to several other places) - one is Figure 2.1, and the other is Figure 4.5. These figures have caused a lot of hair-pulling and screaming ...
Please visit the Telescope Handbook. If you are a professional astronomer who is new to infrared astronomy, and you want to know why the infrared is interesting and useful, then this is a good place to start.
As part of the closeout for the Spitzer cryogenic mission custody of Spitzer documentation was transferred from the Spitzer Science Center to the Infrared Science Archive (IRSA) in April of 2011. However some information needed to run the warm mission was...
The Spitzer Fellowship Program was incorporated into the new Hubble Postdoctoral Fellowship program in 2009. Starting in 2009 the new Hubble Postdoctoral Fellowship Program supports outstanding postdoctoral scientists whose research is broadly related to...
