In preparation for Thermal Balance and Thermal Vacuum testing of the Gaia Flight Model Payload Module (PLM) at Centre Spatial de Liège (CSL), Belgium, the PLM thermal tent is being lowered over the main part of the PLM.

The thermal tent prevents the optical bench, mirrors and focal plane array from being exposed to extraneous radiative thermal inputs.
