LDEF (Postflight), AO038 : Interstellar Gas Experiment, Tray H09
LDEF (Postflight), AO038 : Interstellar Gas Experiment, Tray H09 The postflight photograph was taken in the KSC SAEF II facility after the experiment was removed from the LDEF. The brown stains are still very prominent and appear to be the same as in the flight photograph. The openings in the base plate for the grid voltage cable connector mounts are thought to be the source of the darker brown stains around the connectors. The covers have been installed on the canister housings to protect the space exposed hardware. The contamination stain provides an out- line of tray clamp block locations on the experiment tray flanges.
