Description The millisecond pulsar (MSP) binary J102347.67+003841.2 is unique since it once contained an accretion disk around 2001, indicating that it is the first such binary found at the end of its transition from a low-mass X-ray binary to a radio MSP. The accretion disk was likely disrupted by the pulsar wind from the MSP. Using Spitzer, we have found mid-infrared excess emission in the source, probably arising from the remnant of the previous accretion disk. Here we request Herschel-PACS imaging of the binary, seeking to detect the source at 70 and 160 microns. The detection will help establish the general properties of the putative remnant, which is part of our effort to fully study this rare MSP binary system.

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.
