TIMED Spacecraft Removed from Thermal Vacuum Chamber
January 30, 2013
TIMED underwent thermal vacuum testing at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center to make sure the spacecraft will operate as designed throughout the various environmental conditions it will experience while in orbit. After these tests were completed, TIMED was removed from the thermal vacuum chamber, loaded into its shipping container, and sent back to The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.
