SPACE VEHICLE HIGHLIGHT
An important milestone in fabrication of the Relativity Mission science telescope sunshade was completed on Wednesday, 15 July, when the assembly of the sunshade baffles, and forward and aft housings was completed at Schweizer Aircraft under the supervision of AlliedSignal. The operation went very smoothly and measurements indicate that the alignment of the hardware is within specification. The sunshade housing will be precision cleaned then integrated with the motor and shutter before the start of environmental system test. The sunshade assembly, which included the control electronics, will be delivered to LMMS in late Ocotber 1998.
