Title HIP 80946: A rare warm debris disk?

Author European Space Agency
Description We propose to observe a nearby candidate warm dust system, HIP 89046, that we have
recently identified with WISE. Such debris disk systems are extremely rare, and therefore
characterising each individual is extremely important to understand their origin and
evolution. This object shows mid-IR emission from several instruments that is most likely
associated with the star. There is also significant far-IR emission, which AKARI-FIS
suggests is associated with a nearby object rather than HIP 89046, but may mask emission
from HIP 89046 itself. There is therefore an ambiguity as to whether HIP 89046 is a
protoplanetary disk, or a bona fide warm dust source. These observations will resolve
this ambiguity, and possibly result in confirmation of a new record holder as the
dustiest warm debris disk.

Mission Description Herschel was launched on 14 May 2009! It is the fourth 'cornerstone' mission in the ESA science programme. With a 3.5 m Cassegrain telescope it is the largest space telescope ever launched. It is performing photometry and spectroscopy in approximately the 55-671 µm range, bridging the gap between earlier infrared space missions and groundbased facilities.
