Abstract

The Space Infrared Telescope for Cosmology and Astrophysics (SPICA) will conduct sensitive observations of the Universe at mid- and far-Infrared wavelengths. A NASA-led contribution is proposed to further enhance SPICA’s capabilities, broadening its scientific scope, and to allow US community access to key programs and general observing time. <p/>
