Jura (University of California, Los Angeles), J.E. Van Cleve (Ball Aerospace Systems Division), J.C. Wilson (University of Virginia), T.L. Herter (Cornell University), B. R.

Here are some of the first results from the NASA SIRTF Infrared Spectrograph (IRS) on dusty material around assorted infrared-selected stars, with ages between approximately 10 Myr and the main sequence, and on faint, low-mass stars. We use these spectra to illustrate the power of SIRTF and the IRS as a probe of the origin and evolution of stars and planetary systems throughout the disk of the Milky Way.
