SPICA - a space infrared telescope for cosmology and astrophysics

Dr. Francisco Najarro de la Parra, Dr. Jesús Martín-Pintado

Abstract

In this talk we will review  the SPICA mission and present its current status under the new framework. Optimized for mid- and far-infrared astronomy with a cryogenically cooled ~2.5m telescope, SPICA will achieve high spatial resolution and unprecedented sensitivity in this wavelength domain. It will enable to address fundamental problems in astrophysics ranging from the formation of planets to the star-formation history of the universe.
