Details on Acronym:   SSTc2d
   SSTc2d (Spitzer Space Telescope c2d Legacy Source) Write:<<SSTc2d JHHMMSS.s+DDMMSS>> Object:(IR)  (SIMBAD class: MidIR = Mid-IR Source (3 to 30 µm)) Note:The Spitzer Space Telescope:
it includes three prime science instruments: IRAC - a near-IR camera with four bands (3.6, 4.5, 5.8 and 8.0 microns)
MIPS - a mid to far IR camera, with three bands (24, 70 and 160 microns) plus a very low resolution spectroscopic capability (the SED mode)
IRS - a spectrograph covering the 5-37 micron region with two spectral resolutions.
Observing time on Spitzer is divided between Guaranteed Time Observers, a set of six Legacy Science Teams doing large surveys, and General Observers who will obtain time via a nnual calls for proposals.
The c2d (Cores to Disks) project is one of the Legacy projects, it surveys large areas of nearby molecular clouds. Many new sources are expected.
