Herschel, short for the Herschel Space Observatory, is the fourth cornerstone mission in the ESA science programme. With a 3.5 m Cassegrain telescope it has become the largest space telescope ever launched (see the latest news). It performs photometry and spectroscopy in approximately the 55-672 micron range, bridging the gap between earlier infrared space missions and ground-based facilities.
