The European Space Agency launches in 2009 two flagship missions in the domain of submillimeter space astronomy. The Herschel Space Observatory is a common user facility featuring a 3.5 m aperture Cassegrain telescope passively cooled to 80 K. The Planck survey mission includes a 1.5 m unobscured aperture off-axis aplanatic telescope passively cooled to 40 K. Herschel will make pointed target observations of astrophysical objects and phenomena in the frequency range 448 GHz to 5.3 THz (or 672… CONTINUE READING
