View of the open FOCAL-5 Test chamber with the Planck FM#1 spacecraft viewed from the top. The shiny surface at the centre is the V-Groove 1, which is completely installed for the FM#1 test configuration. The black surfaces at the inner edges of the test chamber are the open honeycomb surfaces of the thermal tent for the cryogenic test.
