Paper Abstract

The proposed JAXA/ISAS SPICA mission will have a cooled 3.5 m mirror and will be the next step forward in sensitivity in far infrared astronomy. We describe the scientific case for an imaging Far Infrared Spectrometer for the SPICA mission and the ongoing design study being carried out by European scientists.
