Caption: Integral satellite deployment. Computer artwork of the Integral satellite being deployed from a Russian Proton rocket. The Integral mission, run by the European Space Agency (ESA), was placed in orbit in October 2002. The satellite is a gamma- ray astrophysics laboratory, whose task is to survey space for gamma rays. These rays, which are given out by supernova explosions and other energetic events, are not detectable on Earth as they are absorbed by the atmosphere.
