The Herschel Space Observatory was launched in May 2009 and observed the Universe until April 2013. Despite the operational phase of the mission being over, this is just the beginning, with the analysis of the data still ongoing and results still flowing out at an impressive rate. Dr Chris North will outline the mission and a few of its science highlights so far.
