[95.07] The Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey Spitzer Legacy Science Program

M. Dickinson (NOAO), GOODS Team

The Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey (GOODS) is a multiwavelength anthology of deep field programs using NASA's Great Observatories and the most powerful ground-based facilities to create a public data resource for studying the formation and evolution of galaxies and active galactic nuclei (AGN) throughout cosmic history. GOODS incorporates a Spitzer Legacy Program, which has obtained the deepest observations with that telescope at 3.6 to 24 microns. The Spitzer/IRAC data detect the rest-frame near-infrared light from galaxies out to z ~6, providing valuable information on their stellar populations and masses. The MIPS 24\mum data are a sensitive probe of re-emitted energy from dust-obscured star formation and AGN out to z ~3. I will very briefly introduce the survey and summarize science highlights from the Spitzer data.
