The CHEOPS spacecraft being lifted from its ground support trolley to be placed in the Large European Acoustic Facility (LEAF) test chamber at ESA's European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, on 5 November 2015.

CHEOPS – composed of the spacecraft platform Structural Qualification Model (SQM) and the Instrument Structural and Thermal Model (STM) – was at ESTEC for acoustic tests that were performed on 6 November 2015.

The white circular holes in the wall of the acoustic test facility, seen in the background on the left, are the ends of large sound horns that are used to produce  noise for the acoustic tests.
