Description The Carina Nebula contains some of the most massive and
luminous stars in our Galaxy and is the best site to study in detail
the physics of violent massive star formation and the
resulting feedback effects, i.e.virgulcloud dispersal and triggering of star
formation. We are engaged in a comprehensive multi-wavelength
study of the Carina Nebula. Our new X-ray and near-infrared data,
and mid-infrared data reveal and characterize the full stellar population.
We also have used LABOCA at the APEX telescope to obtain a
wide-field sub-mm map of the Carina Nebula;
while it shows the morphology of the cold clouds in unprecedented
detail, these single wavelength data do not permit to determine
cloud temperatures, and thus cloud column densities and masses.
Here we ask for 7.2 hours SPIRE/PACS time to map the full spatial
extent of the clouds (5.4 square-deg.) simultaneously at 5
wavelengths. The HERSCHEL maps will yield fluxes at the critical
far-IR wavelengths and allow us to reliably determine cloud temperatures,
column densities, and thus cloud masses.
This will yield a complete inventory of all individual clouds in
the complex, down to cloud masses of 1 Msun, and allow us to
detect the youngest and most deeply embedded protostars (down to 0.1 Msun).
We will map large-scale temperature gradients and
changes in the dust properties that are expected as a consequence of the
strong feedback by the massive stars, and
establish and compare the clump mass functions in different
parts of the complex.
By comparison with similar HERSCHEL data for other star forming regions,
we can address the question of how the particularly high levels of
massive star feedback influence the evolution of the clouds and
the star formation process.
These HERSCHEL data will also reveal the small-scale structure
of the irradiated clouds and allow a
meaningful comp...arison to our dedicated numerical simulations
of the disruption of molecular clouds, the origin of the observed pillar-like
structures, and the triggering of new stellar generations.

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.
