Miroir du satellite Herschel - Herschel spacecraft's mirror - Inspection du miroir du satellite europeen...

IMAGE number
PIX4646082
Title
Miroir du satellite Herschel - Herschel spacecraft's mirror - Inspection du miroir du satellite europeen Herschel. L'observatoire spatial Herschel, dont le lancement est prevu en 2009, etudiera dans l'infrarouge la formation des galaxies, des etoiles et des systemes planetaires. Ce satellite mesure pres de 7 metres de haut par 4,3 metres de large et pese 3,25 tonnes. Son telescope a un miroir de 3,5 metres de diametre, ce qui en fait le plus grand miroir jamais realise pour une mission spatiale scientifique. Herschel sera en orbite autour du point Lagrange 2, soit a environ 1,5 million de kilometres de la Terre. The gigantic telescope of ESA's space - based infrared observatory, Herschel, is being prepared to be assembled with its spacecraft. Herschel's telescope, which will carry the largest mirror ever flown in space, has been delivered to ESA's European Space Research and Technology Centre, ESTEC, where engineers and scientists are busy with the final steps that will prepare the infrared observatory for launch in 2009. ESA's Herschel Space Observatory will observe at wavelengths never covered before. It will be located 1.5 million kilometres away from Earth, farther than any previous space telescope
