SRON and TU Delft are on a mission for revelation of the process of star-evolution in greater detail with Dutch technology. NASA recently approved the budget for the balloon-borne telescope mission GUSTO which is led by University of Arizona. The GUSTO telescope will be equipped with three Dutch ‘cameras’ for three different ‘colours’ in the far infrared (FIR). The camera’s will measure emissions from the cosmic material between the stars called interstellar medium. SRON and TU Delft provide the key detectors and technology.
