Goddard's New Clean Room

Spacecraft hardware is visible in this image of the newly completed MMS cleanroom, built in a warehouse at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. The MMS facility stands out because it features state-of-the-art technology that not only filters air to remove contaminants but also performs this job with 30 percent less energy under low-load conditions. All four Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) spacecraft can be built simultaniously in this new facility faster and cheaper than if built in separate facilities. Credit: NASA
