SWAP First Light!

The P2SC team is very excited to announce that on 14 December 2009 the door of the SWAP telescope onboard PROBA2 was opened successfully. The first solar images confirmed that the detector and filters are working fine. During the Christmas holidays the SWAP instrument is put in storage. Early January, the procedure will start to open the LYRA covers as well.

Details about the first results of PROBA2 will be given during a press event on the 26th of January 2010 at the Royal Observatory of Belgium.
