Welcome to the Herschel Space Observatory Blog.
Herschel is the European Space Agency’s far-infrared space telescope, due to be launched at the end of 2008.
This blog will give you some idea of what it’s like to work on a project like this, from day to day trivia to the excitement of launch and of getting new scientific results that tell us how the universe works.
The blog is open to various members of the Herschel team, and anyone can post a comment or ask us a question. At the moment it’s rather early days, and the blog has few posters and a rather basic style. That will change with time. Eventually we will have news of the latest science results covering everything from star and planet formation to galaxy formation in the high redshift universe.
So read, enjoy, and let us know what you think!
