Herschel telescope ready for integration

Herschel telescope ready for integration

8 April 2008

The Herschel telescope is now ready for integration onto the spacecraft!

Accelerometers are installed on Herschel prior to telescope integration

Personnel from EADS Astrium, Toulouse, have completed the installation of accelerometers for the upcoming mechanical and acoustic tests at spacecraft level. These were the last steps needed on the telescope prior to its integration onto the cryostat telescope mounting structure. The integration of the Herschel solar array/sunshade will be performed before that of the telescope.
