Spitzer Space Telescope

(SST, Spitzer, Space Infrared Telescope Facility, SIRTF)
(a satellite with infrared telescope)

The Spitzer Space Telescope (SST, or Space Infrared Telescope Facility, SIRTF) is an Infrared satellite launched 2003. Most instruments failed in 2009 when the liquid Helium supply ran out, but "IRAC' still can image in some of its Bands, so it continues to be used as the Spitzer Warm Mission.

It has a heliocentric orbit, trailing Earth's orbit by about .1 Astronomical Unit. It is named for scientist Lyman Spitzer.
