This is a picture of the SIA ( Space Instrument Assembly) quartz block being placed inside a special cleaning cabinet, located in one of HEPL's clean rooms.  The project sign located in front of the Mission Operations Module at Stanford.  HEPL labs, empty, prior to the construction of the labs and clean rooms required by GP-B.  Before 1988, at least.  Gas distribution management center in HEPL labs.  Stanford University W. W. Hansen Experimental Physics Lab (HEPL), where much of the Gravity Probe B technology was designed and built.

The empty Mission Operation Control (MOC) room on the Stanford University Campus.  GP-B Cryogenic gases distribution center.  Outside of FISTOps, inside of the HEPL building.  Corridor between FISTOps and the class 100 clean room.  The SQUID readout lab in the HEPL building. The plastic walls form a temporary  Stanford University, with the two-story Gravity Probe B building in the left foreground and Stanford's Hoover Tower in the background.  The Gravity Probe B building at Stanford University.  Looking down Via Palou Street at Stanford, the Gravity Probe B building is on the left, and the W.W. Hansen Experimental Physics Lab, where much of the GP-B technology was developed, is on the right.
