TIMED's Thermal Vacuum Testing at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center

January 30, 2013
To make sure the TIMED spacecraft will operate as designed throughout a variety of environmental conditions it will experience during orbit, the spacecraft underwent a series of tests, known as thermal vacuum tests. A large vacuum chamber at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, in Greenbelt, Md., was used to replicate the space environment in which TIMED will be operating. These tests were conducted during December 1999 and January 2000.
