|Herschel observations of a benchmark sample of nearby powerful radio galaxies
|pilbratt, g. l.
|PACS photometry of the complete, unbiased 2 Jy sample of 46 powerful, southern radio galaxies (0.05 &amp;gt; z &amp;gt; 0.7), and SPIRE photometry of a subsample. This sample is currently the best observed of any sample of radio-loud AGN, and is unique in terms of the completeness of its data at optical, mid- to far-IR and radio wavelengths, and is available for future ALMA observations. These observations will provide the link for comparison with existing Herschel observations of samples of both high-z radio galaxies and nearby radio-quiet AGN.

|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.
