RBSP Spacecraft Inspection

August 22, 2012
Using a black light, technicians closely inspect a solar panel on one of NASA's twin Radiation Belt Storm Probes inside the clean room high bay at the Astrotech payload processing facility near NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The technicians are dressed in clean-room attire known as “bunny suits.” Black-light inspection uses UVA fluorescence to detect possible microcontamination, small cracks or fluid leaks.
