· More scientific highlights from this year.

First results of Herschel and the HerMES extragalactic survey.

ESA's Herschel Space Observatory was launched on 14 May 2009. After a short commissioning and performance verification period, the science demonstration observations started in September 2009. Herschel is now carrying out routine science observations.

The three instruments (SPIRE, PACS and HIFI) are working extremely well. The IAC is part of the SPIRE and PACS instrument consortia and has contributed flying hardware and software.

The first results of the many Herschel Key Projects were presented at the ESLAB 2010 symposium in ESTEC (May 2010) and have been published in July 2010 in a special issue of Astronomy and Astrophysics (Vol. 518):

The Herschel Multi-tiered Extragalactic Survey (HerMES, http://hermes.sussex.ac.uk/) is an astronomical project to study the evolution of galaxies in the distant Universe. HerMES is the largest project on ESA's Herschel Space Observatory. The project is carried out by a large team, made up primarily of people who built the SPIRE instrument on Herschel.

The first results of the HerMES survey were published in the special issue of Astronomy and Astrophysics. Some of these papers are in collaboration with the PACS Evolutionary Probe (PEP) extragalactic survey (http://www.mpe.mpg.de/ir/Research/PEP/).
