Micha Schmidt, Herschel's Spacecraft Operations Manager at ESOC, says that requests for in-orbit validation and analysis of hardware and software came from the mission control teams at ESOC, from the European industry teams that built the satellite and its components and from science instrument teams.
The final command issued on Monday was the last step in a complex series of flight control activities and thruster manoeuvres designed to take Herschel into a safe disposal orbit around the Sun and passivate its systems. ...
