2nd MPE Vodcast - Herschel/PACS

The second MPE  external linkvideo 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.
