Dwayne Light (left), director of Florida Operations, Astrotech, and Jim Adams, deputy project manager for NASA's Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO), Goddard Space Flight Center, ceremonially open the doors of the new class 10,000 clean-room enclosure at Astrotech, signaling the enclosure is ready for operation. Astrotech is a payload processing facility in Titusville, near Kennedy Space Center. This clean-room enclosure, within the high bay at Astrotech, meets the additional stringent cleanliness requirements necessary for processing STEREO for launch. The enclosure was designed and constructed by Astrotech to meet the spacecraft requirements provided by STEREO project management at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. STEREO consists of two spacecraft whose mission is the first to take measurements of the sun and solar wind in 3-D. Launch aboard a Boeing Delta II rocket from Launch Complex 17 on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station is scheduled to occur over the summer. Photo credit: NASA/Dimitri Gerondidakis
