Swiss Government in the Clean Room

To kick of their annual “school trip” in summer 2016 all seven members of the Swiss Federal Council visited the University of Bern. The professors Willy Benz, Kathrin Altwegg and Nicolas Thomas presented their space projects: the space telescope CHEOPS, the Rosetta spectrometer ROSINA-RTOF and the mars camera CaSSIS. For entering the CHEOPS laboratory the VIPs had to wear protective gear. At the end polytechnician apprentices handed them on models of CHEOPS as a farewell gift. They manufactured the detailed scale 1:20 models themselves.
