Von links nach rechts sind die Konfiguration zu Beginn, während des Einschwing- vorgangs und die Oszillation um die neue Gleichgewichtslage unter Schwerelosigkeit gezeigt. Teilweise zu erkennen sind Temperatur- sensoren, die auch bei ca.  253 °C (20 K) sehr präzise Temperatur- messungen erlauben. (Quelle: ZARM)
