Problem with Spitzer Space Telescope - apparently resolved

The problem is now resolved. This past week, there was a problem with the electronics that control the IRS and MIPS instruments onboard the Spitzer Space Telescope. Normal science operations have resumed.

Description of the problem can be found on the SSC website.
