  1. Looks like Spitzer project has set the date to end operations.

      That's really soon. What information do you expect it will provide?

      It has already provided all sorts of info.  Spitzer is one of NASA's 4 great space observatories.  Everybody's heard of Hubble of course.  Hubble was the visible-light telescope so it got all the press.  Spitzer, Chandra, and GRO were the others.  Spitzer's specialty was infrared, which allowed it to see through clouds of dust that visible-light telescopes like Hubble could not.  Spitzer was used mainly to take images of the insides of nebula and see where and how stars are born.  If you've ever seen that "mountains of creation" image, that was Spitzer's.  It was also used to study black holes and star clusters in the centers of galaxies, which are always obscured by gas and dust that collects around them.  The telescope was launched in 2003 so it has had a pretty good run, and has taken a lot of pictures.  The James Web telescope will eventually be replacing it, if they ever launch it.
