Catalogs Images Spectra
IRSA hosts data from six astrophysics missions and projects. The Infrared Astronomical Satellite (IRAS), the 2-Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) and the Midcourse Space Experiment (MSX) are major infrared sky surveys. IRAS performed the first wide-area sky survey in the thermal infrared. 2MASS is the first multi-TB, all-sky, fully digital image and catalog data set. As the successor of IRAS, MSX provided higher spatial resolution coverage of the Galactic Plane, and surveyed areas missed by IRAS (the "IRAS Gaps"). The Submillimeter Wave Astronomy Satellite (SWAS) measures submillimeter spectra of astronomical targets. The Infrared Telescope in Space (IRTS) performed imaging and spectroscopy of swaths of the sky. The Spitzer Space Telescope Ancillary data sets are served on behalf of Spitzer and the Spitzer Legacy Teams, and consist of multi-wavelength catalogs, images and spectra.
