1. SPIRE Webinar: What's New in HIPE 13, May 19th 2015, 10:00-11:30 AM PDT
This webinar covers the most important improvements in SPIRE data processing coming with the recent HIPE 13 release. After introductory presentations, there will be time for an extended question-and-answer session for any issues that participants would like to bring up.
Highlights include a new multi-pass photometer pipeline for improved deglitching and more accurate beam profiles, and for the spectrometer, significantly better spectra due to an updated linearization correction as well as a more user friendly product structure inside observation contexts, etc.
More information is available at the SPIRE news page.
2. Herschel Data Processing Workshop for Newcomers - 16-19 June 2015
Registration is now open for the Herschel Science Center's workshop "Herschel Data Processing for Newcomers 2015", to be held 16-19 June 2015.
The workshop can only be attended on-line. The target audience is novice users interested in accessing and interpreting Herschel data. The workshop will include tutorials and short demos that will be broadcast live in the mornings (European time) of each day. In the afternoons, participants are encouraged to experiment with data and to relay questions to the tutors via the helpdesk or videoconferencing chat.
Registration closes on June 12. For more information, please visit:

Suzaku, Herschel Link a Black Hole 'Wind' to a Galactic Gush of Star-forming Gas
News Release • March 25, 2015
By combining observations from the Japan-led Suzaku X-ray satellite and the European Space Agency's infrared Herschel Space Observatory, scientists have connected a fierce "wind" produced near a galaxy's monster black hole to an outward torrent of cold gas a thousand light-years across.
Herschel’s view of the early Universe reveals galaxy cluster fireworks
News Release • December 18, 2014
Astronomers using ESA’s Herschel space observatory have found, for the first time, fireworks of star birth within galaxies at the dense core of a massive early Universe galaxy cluster. This frenzy of star formation reveals the young lives of now “red and dead” elliptical galaxies and gives new clues to the evolution of some of the largest structures in the Universe.
