Author wilson, c.
Description We propose to use the SPIRE and PACS instruments on Herschel to measure the
emission spectrum from dust as well as important cooling lines from the gaseous interstellar medium in sample of 13 very nearby galaxies (M51,
M81, NGC2403, NGC891, M83, M82, Arp220, NGC4038/39, NGC1068,
NGC4151, CenA, NGC4125, and NGC205). These galaxies have
been chosen to probe as wide a region
in galaxy parameter space as possible while maximizing the achievable spatial
resolution and are already well-studied from X-ray and optical through
to radio wavelengths. The far-infrared and submillimeter wavelengths probed by
Herschel are absolutely crucial for understanding the physical processes
and properties of the interstellar medium,the interplay between star formation
and the interstellar medium in galaxies, and how they may depend on the wider
galaxian environment.

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.
