The LISA Pathfinder science module is pictured in front of the space environment vacuum test facility at IABG, Ottobrunn, Germany, in March 2015, prior to the start of thermal tests. These extra tests were carried out to check that the installation of cold gas thrusters, which had been done since the previous thermal test cycle, had not adversely affected the thermal behavior of the science module.
