LISA Pathfinder's scientific payload completely assembled

LISA Technology Package (LTP) Core Assembly in the LTP Support Structure

All components of the LISA Technology Package (LTP) Core Assembly have been integrated in the LTP Support Structure which – among other things – provides thermal shielding for the sensitive scientific equipment. The assembly is now put through vibration tests on a shaker platform. This will mimick the conditions the satellite will experience during the launch on a Vega rocket.
