SOFIA

SOFIA will be the largest airborne observatory in the world, and will make observations that are impossible for even the largest and highest of ground-based telescopes. SOFIA will enable studies of the universe in the infrared spectrum, and will develop new observational techniques with new instrumentation and will contribute to the hands-on education of young scientists and teachers in the discipline of infrared astronomy.

STScI provided proposal preparation software (APT) for SOFIA.
