August 25 marks 14 years since NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope was launched into space from Cape Canaveral in Florida. In its "Spitzer Beyond" phase now and drifting further away from Earth with each passing day, Spitzer continues to provide astronomers around the world with excellent data, revealing more of the never-ending wonders of the cosmos.
Throughout the extraordinary journey of this tireless astronomy robot, we have shared with you numerous insights Spitzer revealed about distant galaxies, black holes, peculiar stars and exoplanets such as those harbored around TRAPPIST-1.
For its 14th anniversary, we want YOU to share with us the questions you have about Spitzer - the mission, the telescope, the team, the technology, the science or anything else that comes to mind.
Send us your questions with a hashtag #AskSpitzer on Twitter or Facebook between July 17th and August 4th. Select questions will be answered by Spitzer experts in an upcoming anniversary video which we'll release on August 25th.
