Description IRAS F00183-7111 is possibly the most luminous ULIRG discovered by IRAS. Nicknamed the .fire and ice galaxy. since its widely-cited first Spitzer-IRS observations were published in 2004, this galaxy has continued to amaze. Not only does it host the possibly most deeply obscured powerful AGN-quasar in the Local Universe (z<0.4), its extremely wide mid-IR neon line profiles and the extended red wing to the CO(J=1-0) line hint at massive outflows. These outflows may be powered by the radio jets, which appear to be young and which may be responsible for the optically-obscured, highly disturbed ionized neon gas line emission seen with Spitzer, the multiple spatial and kinematic [O III] 5007A components, and the off-nuclear soft X-ray bubble seen by XMM. So far this luminous z=0.328 merger has remained unobserved by Herschel. Here we propose to study its nuclear outflow at far-infrared wavelengths to reveal optically obscured high-velocity ionized gas outflow components, and to assess the extent and timescale of the neutral and molecular gas outflows, which may drive the evolution of IRAS F00183-7111 from a deeply buried merger remnant to a naked QSO. Our proposed observations may also benefit existing Herschel ULIRG outflow studies by providing measurements for a ULIRG that will extend the current L(AGN) range by a factor of two. This study will further also be r^ant for understanding the population of deeply obscured radio galaxies found at high redshifts.

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.
