Experimental re-entry test vehicle. Close-up of an Expert (eXPErimental Reentry Testbed) re-entry vehicle built by the ESA (European Space Agency) to measure the conditions experienced by spacecraft during re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere. It includes a number of scientific measuring instruments including thermometers, heat-flux and pressure sensors, spectrometers and an infrared camera. The data collected will provide improved information on the re-entry conditions, which will help in the design of future space vehicles.
