17-Apr-02 | SIRTF in testing

The Space Infrared Telescope Facility (SIRTF) is now in testing at Lockheed Martin Space System’s Sunnyvale, California, campus following integration of its cryogenic telescope assembly. SIRTF is the last of NASA’s Great Observatories, a group that includes the Hubble Space Telescope, the late Compton Gamma Ray Observatory, and the Chandra X-Ray Observatory. SIRTF will launch into a heliocentric orbit aboard an upgraded Delta II rocket in early 2003. (Spaceflight Now, 15-Apr-02)
