The second MPE
video podcast ("vodcast") introduces
the Herschel Space Observatory, the Herschel instrument PACS
(Photodetector Array Camera & Spectrometer), developed and built at MPE,
and the PACS team.
The viewer gains insight into the operations of technicians and scientists
in the MPE cleanroom, laboratory and control centre, which had to be put
into this project in order to make Herschel/PACS ready to study the
evolution of stars. The vodcast captures the mood before launch and gives
an impression of the hopes that MPE scientists connect with the largest
space telescope ever built.
