On Friday, 1 December, the observatory was loaded onto a truck in the Dallas/Fort Worth airport and transported to Kennedy Space Center in Florida where Terma’s team unloaded the equipment and started preparation for transfer to clean room facilities.
The equipment will be checked thoroughly to ensure that everything has arrived as it was prior to shipment. For this purpose, chock sensors have been mounted on boxes and transport containers.
