Herschel, along with Planck, were mentioned in a Sunday Times article about recent ESA missions. The article mostly focuses on the GOCE satellite, but Herschel and Planck feature towards the end. Herschel is described as ‘the most powerful space telescope built’ It’s interesting to see that the size of Herschel’s main mirror is translated from metric (3.5m) to Imperial (11 feet).
