Spitzer Images 2 comments

NASA released the first images from the Spitzer Space Telescope today:

Launched in August 2003 as the Space Infrared Telescope Facility (SIRTF), Spitzer was renamed in honor of Dr. Lyman Spitzer, Jr, the first to propose placing telescopes in space.

I like this one the best of this first batch (caution: 1.3 Megabyte image).
Update: Jay Manifold, A Voyage to Arcturus, has a writeup on the Spitzer Space Telescope here.
