Following the switch-on of the SPIRE instrument, the first Herschel in-flight instrument data, 29 SPIRE Manual Commanding observations, were successfully processed by the Herschel Data Processing pipelines and ingested into the Herschel Science Archive. Achieving a flawless end to end processing and archiving with engineering observations, some of the most difficult observations to handle, is a great start for the Herschel ground segment.
