HIFI Returns!


Reports from various places, including its builders SRON and the BBC reveal that the HIFI instrument on Herschel is now back to full working order.

This is great news for Herschel as it means its third instrument, which gives it high resolution spectroscopic capabilities needed to fully understand the chemistry and physics of star formation, is back!

There’s a whole lot of information about recent science results we hope to post over the next few weeks as well.
