Stars are born and die in clouds of fuel and dirt, opaque to so much sorts of radiation, yet obvious within the infrared. Requiring complicated detectors, area missions and cooled telescopes, infrared astronomy is the final department of this self-discipline to return of age. After a really profitable sky survey played within the eighties through the IRAS satellite tv for pc, the Infrared area Observatory, within the nineties, introduced wonderful advances within the knowing of the tactics giving upward push to robust infrared emission by means of a very good number of celestial resources.

CERNICHARO AND J. CROVISIER Figure 9. Map of the 313 –220 line of p-H16 2 O at 183 GHz around Sgr B2 main condensations. Contours (in K km s−1 ) are indicated in the figure. Different line profiles at significant positions of the map are also shown. The intensity scale is in T A∗ and the abscissa is the LSR velocity in km s−1 . , in press). Observations of the H2 O 313 –220 line (El 200 K) at ∼183 GHz toward Sgr B2 are presented in Figure 9 (integrated line intensity over the observed region and several spectra at relevant positions).

One of the most exciting new venues of dust studies is the possibility to quantitatively compare the dust in our own solar system to that seen in space. Laboratory techniques are becoming increasingly powerful and provide important information about the formation history of solar system and stardust samples. High spatial resolution observations at infrared wavelengths will allow us to study the (crystalline) silicate formation and growth in red giants and its time dependence, thus putting tight constraints on dust nucleation models.
