In this timelapse movie, scientists and engineers can be seen at Caltech preparing NASA’s SPHEREx space telescope for tests inside a vacuum chamber provided by KASI. The process took more than two weeks and involved more than 20 people.
SPHEREx space telescope will map the entire sky.
The SPHEREx team has developed advanced software to plan observations while keeping the telescope safely pointed away from the heat and stray light of the sun, moon, and earth.
After 25 months of science operations, SPHEREx will image the entire sky four times in over 100 near-infrared colors.
