Description We propose to continue our study of the high-z galaxy SMMJ02399-0136 at z=2.8 by observing with Herschel several bright far-IR fine-structure lines from O, N, and C, as well as its rest-frame mid- and far-IR continuum. This source is an excellent target of study because it has been extensively observed in other wavelengths, we have previously detected it in the [NII] 122 and [OIII] 88 micron lines, using ZEUS on the CSO, and it resides in the epoch of peak star formation in the Universe. Furthermore, SMMJ02399 is a multi-component system with AGN and starburst components at different relative velocities. Thus it presents the unique opportunity of observing an AGN, a starburst, and their interaction simultaneously from a source at high-z. The sensitivity, resolution, and broad spectral coverage of Herschels spectrometers, makes Herschel the ideal observatory from which we can make these observations. For several lines, it is the only observatory capable. Our proposed Herschel observations will allow us to determine the AGN and starburst contribution to the lines, characterize the starburst and the narrow-line region of the AGN, and explore the relationships between star formation and AGN in galaxies in the early universe.

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.
