Herschel's First Science Results, Eagle Nebula 91

davecl writes "Over the next three days, many new science results will come out from Herschel. The first of these, a view deep inside the stellar nursery of the Eagle Nebula, finds a huge amount of activity, revealing new stars and filaments of dust that could not have been detected by previous telescopes. Also open today is OSHI, the online showcase of Herschel images where all the new science images will be found. Herschel news also available on the Herschel Mission Blog."

    If you are so timid that you cannot bear the thought of never seeing "home" again you deserve to be so condemned as it will be only your own weakness confining you.

How many NASA managers does it take to screw in a lightbulb? "That's a known problem... don't worry about it."
