Payload passes tests

29 Mar, 2006

Space controllers have tested science instruments on board and confirm that all instruments survived the launch and are working properly.

The instruments are sending back a lot of housekeeping data that says they’re working the way they’re supposed to. The mission science team is just beaming to know that the entire payload survived the stresses of launch in good health.
