36.226 BOCK/CALTECH 3-27-2008

Dr. Jamie Bock and his Caltech science team have spent several weeks at Wallops integrating The CIBER telescope in the cleanroom at Wallops.and testing their instrument.

CIBER will conduct a pioneering search for Infra-Red Background (IRB) anisotropies, and is specifically designed to measure fluctuations at wavelengths and spatial scales where a putative first-light galaxy signal can be best detected and discriminated from foregrounds.

CIBER is scheduled for launch from White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico in June 2008.
