Contract filled for Herschel Space Observatory   

ESA's Herschel Space Observatory, launched on 14 May 2009, ran out of liquid helium on Monday 29 April, causing global warming and the end of operations. It has allowed a leap forward in understanding the birth of stars, the evolution of galaxies and interstellar matter, and even our solar system. Initially scheduled to run for three and a half years, Herschel will have opened a new window on the Universe and provided more than 25,000 hours of data for 600 observation programs.
