Description The South Pole Telescope has conducted a large survey of the southern sky at millimeter wavelengths and discovered a population of high-redshift strongly-lensed dusty star forming galaxies. Both the lensing and the long wavelength selection biases these sources to the highest redshift and their apparent luminosity makes them the most best possible candidates for SPIRE FTS spectroscopy. By combining the unique capabilities of SPT as a survey machine and Herschel as a followup spectroscopy machine, we propose to obtain spectra for five of the brightest lensed sources in the sky. These observations will open a new astrophysical window into the study of young star forming galaxies. The ratios of far-IR lines will provide ground-breaking physical information about this earliest stage of galaxy evolution, including the best measures of how star formation is proceeding, dust emission and absorption properties, the detailed physics of the ISM, and also the quantitative contribution of the emission that comes from black hole accretion in an obscured AGN for these high redshift sources.

Mission Description Herschel was launched on 14 May 2009! It is the fourth 'cornerstone' mission in the ESA science programme. With a 3.5 m Cassegrain telescope it is the largest space telescope ever launched. It is performing photometry and spectroscopy in approximately the 55-671 ┬Ám range, bridging the gap between earlier infrared space missions and groundbased facilities.
