[124.06] Implications for JWST from the First Results with SIRTF

G. H. Rieke (University of Arizona)

By the time of the AAS meeting, the SIRTF mission will be more than four months past launch. SIRTF is a technical and scientific precursor for JWST. I will discuss key performance aspects of SIRTF, such as the effectiveness of its radiative cooling, to indicate how they affect confidence in the ultimate success of JWST. I will also give a high-level overview of some of the very early SIRTF science results that may set the stage for future more detailed investigations with JWST.
