FUSE Integration and Test Photos:
Conclusion of Thermal Vac Testing 1/27/99

Views of the FUSE satellite in the process of being removed from the thermal vac tank at NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD. Digital camera photos by George Sonneborn, 1/27/99. (Click on any of the photos to see larger versions.)

Nice view of FUSE I and T test area, adjacent to the Thermal Vac tank at GSFC. This is where the test engineers spent many happy hours from November 1998 through January 1999 running tests on FUSE.

View looking down into thermal vac tank as FUSE is prepared for lifting.

Flying FUSE! This view shows the FUSE satellite hanging from a crane as it was being lifted out of the thermal vacuum tank.

Here FUSE has been lowered onto a dolly for transport to a separate clean room at GSFC.
