Since mid-2009, the Herschel Space Observatory provides new light on these long-standing astrophysical questions. With its 3.5m primary mirror, it delivers observations in the 55-671 micrometer range with unprecedented sensitivity, spatial and spectral resolution, revolutionising our understanding of the star and planet formation processes.
Approaching the three year anniversary of the launch of Herschel, the French Space Agency (CNES) and the Institut de Planétologie et d’Astrophysique de Grenoble (IPAG), are organising an exceptional Symposium : From Atoms to Pebbles : Herschel’s view of Star and Planet Formation. This event will be held over 3.5 days, from 20th to 23rd of March 2012, in Grenoble (the heart of the French Alps), France.
