As NASA’s final Great Observatory enters its second decade of science observations, this special session will highlight the unique and evolving science enabled by Spitzer in the fields of exoplanet characterization, stellar variability, and high-redshift galaxies and clusters. The speakers will also explore future discoveries made possible by operating Spitzer through 2018 and mining the rich public archive after the end of operations.
