CLASH and HOP Data Releases
CLASH is an HST Multi-Cycle Treasury program to survey 25 massive galaxy clusters at 16 wavelengths spanning from the near-UV to the near-IR. A series of programs with Spitzer have covered all CLASH galaxy clusters with IRAC Channels 1 and 2 (3.6 and 4.5 micron). Several of the targets include Channels 3 and 4 (5.8 and 8 micron) data. Spitzer mosaics, catalogs, and PSF images are now available.
HOP used HIFI to probe a range of molecular cloud environments to detect molecular oxygen. The three strongest transitions in the range covered by HIFI from energy levels lower than 120 K above the ground state were selected (487.3 GHz, 773.8 GHz and 1120.7 GHz) for the following targets: Sgr A, Sgr B2(S), OMC-1(Peak 1), Orion Bar, rho Oph A, NGC 1333 IRAS 4A, NGC 6334I and AFGL 2591. Both single LOs and Spectral scans are available. This program also provides a spectral map of rhoOph.

PEP Data Release
IRSA announces the PACS Evolutionary Probe (PEP) data release.
PEP is a Herschel guaranteed time deep extragalactic survey targeting six among the most popular "blank fields", ten lensing clusters of galaxies, and two z ~1 clusters at wavelengths of 100 and 160 microns. PEP also includes SPIRE observations of the two z ~1 clusters at wavelengths of 250, 350, and 500 microns. PEP data products include image maps, source catalogs, residual maps, and PSFs.
