The Infrared Space Observatory, an approved and funded project of the European Space Agency is an astronomical satellite operating at wavelengths from 3 to 200 microns. The launch date is 1992. It will obtain spectroscopic, imaging, photometric and polarimetric measurements of selected celestial objects using a cryogenically-cooled 60cm telescope and a complement of four nationally-funded scientific instruments.
