Abstract

Herschel will be the largest space telescope of its kind when launched (early 2009). Herschel's 3.5-metre diameter mirror will collect long-wavelength infrared radiation from some of the coolest and most distant objects in the Universe. Herschel will be the only space observatory to cover the spectral range from far-infrared to sub-millimetre wavelengths. Herschel's Photodetector Array Camera and Spectrometer (PACS) and its Spectral and Photometric Imaging Receiver (SPIRE) are perfectly suited for the characterisation of trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs), the observable targets of our own debris disk.
