eROSITA X-ray space telescope reaches the Baikonur Cosmodrome

On 25 April, the eROSITA X-ray space telescope reached the Baikonur Cosmodrome for final preparation for the launch with the Proton-M rocket on 21 June. The eROSITA telescope, utilizing seven optical modules supplied by Media Lario each composed of 54 Repli-Formed™ mirrors, was designed and integrated by MPE (Max Planck for Extraterrestrial Physics).

The telescope will perform high resolution sky surveys to find galaxy clusters and supermassive black holes. This video shows the arrival of the 6 tons satellite and its impressive unloading sequence from a huge Antonov cargo airplane.

Media Lario is proud of being part of this new space mission and will soon report on the launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome.
