Author groenewegen, m.
Description This DDT proposal is the .successor. to proposal DDT_mgroen01_6. In the original proposal we argued that it is possible to obtain a phase-lag distance to the well-known Carbon star CW Leo, and obtained 2 epochs of SPIRE time. In this proposal we present first results and demonstrate that the method works and present a first distance estimate. The dominant error is in the phase-lag, and we ask for 2 additional epochs to reduce this error, and obtain a more precise and accurate distance.

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.
