Ultra-cool test of Jupiter instrument

0
(0)

An instrument destined for Jupiter orbit undergoes eight days of cryogenic radio-frequency testing using a new test facility at ESA’s ESTEC technical centre in the Netherlands. The Submillimetre Wave Instrument of ESA’s Juice mission will survey the churning atmosphere of Jupiter and the scanty atmospheres of its Galilean moons.

Testing took place in ESA’s custom-built Low-temperature Near-field Terahertz chamber, or Lorentz. The first chamber of its kind, the 2.8-m diameter Lorentz chamber can perform high-frequency radio-frequency testing in realistic space conditions, combining space-quality vacuum with ultra-low temperatures.

  1. It would be interesting to know more about the operation of the test chamber. Is the cooling of the test article radiative in vacuum, or via a low-pressure exchange gas, or conductive via a support structure?

  2. That Is completely what caused Climate change come to my home I can show you how Allah accept people but don't use these otherwise alien community on high alert to destroy your complete climate change and Satanism craft. come Yemen you need more training. take my comment that your things wont work. it is Same as pharoes who built pyramids.

  3. hey guys! Is it true that Samantha Cristoforetti's gonna be on the first EU-China joint mission to the Chinese Space Station? and if yes, do the mission already have a set date? thanks and keep up the great work!
