Title Confirming an following up on the detection of water vapour from Ceres

Author kuppers, m.
Description The question of dwarf planet Ceres potentially being water rich is highly important for solar system science. A Herschel observation on 11 Oct. showed a clear detection of water absorption in Ceres spectrum, but only in H polarisation. An immediate reobservation is here requested.

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.
