Spitzer and exoplanets

I spent a big chunk of the day working on the Spitzer Oversight Committee, which is helping the Spitzer Science Center react to funding realities and the slow shut-down of an incredibly productive and successful but finite observatory mission. We spent some time in the meeting talking about Spitzer's capabilities for (and successes in) exoplanet science, and the possibility of encouraging that even more in the future. This post bends the rules but oddly I truly find the work I do on this committee to be of great intellectual interest.
