After roughly four months of intensive maintenance in Hamburg, February, 4th marks the time for us to say goodbye to SOFIA, the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, with an on-time redelivery to NASA and DLR.
Curious about what SOFIA looks like from the inside? Or interested in the most important technical milestones of her Extended Maintenance Visit (EMV)? If you are, feel free to follow our colleague Sven Hatje on a virtual tour around and through this one-of-a-kind aircraft. As the technical project manager for the EMV, he explains various highlights that his outstanding team worked on during the last months.
