As the infrared cousin to Hubble, the Spitzer Space Telescope was launched in 2003 to study the cool universe with waves that are invisible to the human eye. It can probe the birth and youth of stars and planetary disks, and study of planets orbiting other stars. Dr. Michael Bicay, NASA Ames Research Center, describes the long road leading to Spitzer’s launch, and presents highlights from the mission’s first decade of discovery. Recorded April 16, 2014
