ESA’s cobalt-60 unit in the Netherlands,can run up to three tests in parallel as if in a shooting gallery, behind 70 cm-thick walls (1.5 m -hick at the back). Once the 700 kg safety door has been closed, the cobalt-60 source rises into position to expose the delicate electronic parts to the gamma rays.
