HIFI to make a come back in 2010


A comment from Gert reveals the news that HIFI will be returning to operations in 2010. This is the third instrument on Herschel alongside SPIRE and PACS. It’s been suffering from technical difficulties which have been investigated for the last several months. A fix has now been determined and we hope that it will rapidly return to full operation once it’s been turned back on.

A full report can be found here.

Good news!
