Herschel Science Team

The Herschel Science Team has as its overall objective (as stated in the Science Management Plan) to safeguard the scientific interests of the Herschel mission.

SVM/STM

The Science Team was formed in 1998, the first meeting was held in December 1998. Its composition is derived from ESA, the instrument consortia, and a number of Mision Scientists representing the astronomical community `at large'. In 2001 the Herschel Optical System Scientist was added. It is chaired by the Herschel Project Scientist.

During Herschel Science Team meeting#22 on 27 April 2005 the meeting went to see the Herschel service module (SVM) structural thermal model (STM) in the ESTEC Test Centre where it had arrived just a few days before.
