Caption: Satellite vacuum and temperature tests. Engineers preparing a satellite for testing in the LSS (Large Space Simulator), a room designed to replicate the conditions experienced in space. The air is evacuated to produce a high-grade vacuum, and the temperature can be varied between minus 190 and plus 600 degrees Celsius. Photographed at the ESTEC (European Space research and Technological Center) site in Noordwijk, the Netherlands.
