THE GRAVITATIONAL UNIVERSE HAS BEEN SELECTED:
ESA DECIDED ON NEXT LARGE MISSION CONCEPTS
ESA announced that the hot and energetic Universe and the search for elusive gravitational waves will be the focus of ESA’s next two large science missions. Both topics will bridge fundamental astrophysics and cosmology themes by studying in detail the processes that are crucial to the large-scale evolution of the Universe and its underlying physics.
LPF OPTICAL BENCH INTEGRATED INTO CORE ASSEMBLY
LISA Pathfinder space mission reached another important milestone: Its heart, the optical bench, was now further integrated into the core assembly of the satellite. Dr Christian Killow (Scottish Universities Physics Alliance Advanced Fellow) said: “It is rewarding to see CAD models turning into real hardware!”
