Description Powerful radio galaxies have played a central role in our understanding of
active galaxies over the past five decades. Cygnus-A, the brightest and
most nearby FR-II source, has been a Rosetta Stone in this study.
It appears to have the outward characteristics of a normal radio galaxy
but it.s proximity allows us to identify the more subtle properties of
an obscured quasar. The energy provided by this very active galaxy
is sufficient to launch the energetic jets we observe but the transport
of the energy to the hotspots is poorly constrained and understood.
The growing realisation that AGN directly affect their host galaxy
through a direct feedback mechanism throughout the lifetime of the
galaxy makes it especially important for the most nearby obscured
quasar to be observed with the widest possible spectral coverage.
We propose to use Herschel to reveal the heating of the central
region and the energetics of the hotspots. We request observations of the
atomic cooling lines [OI], [OIII] and [CII] that will allow us to compare the
energetics of the ISM in Cygnus A with other local and more distant
galaxies.

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.
