Spitzer's infrared array camera can image the extra heat from newly formed stars, even though their visible light is obscured by thick dust clouds around them.
However, that light would get stretched, or redshifted, on its 13 1/2-billion-year journey through an expanding universe--turning it into the infrared light that Spitzer's Infrared Array Camera can see.
As it turns out, Spitzer's ability to reflect and dissipate excess heat keeps it cool enough for two of the four channels of its infrared array camera (those that operate at wavelengths near 3.6 and 4.5 microns) to operate even without liquid helium.
Using Spitzer's Infrared Array Camera at wavelengths of 4.5 and 8 microns, a team led by David Charbonneau (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) observed TrES-1's host star for 5.6 hours on October 30-31, 2004.
But the new space telescope's Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) and Multiband Imaging Photometer for Spitzer (MIPS) see through the haze, uncovering a glowing stellar nursery.
