ESA's Alphasat telecom satellite - seen here during encapsulation on 15 July - carries a quartet of test technologies on its side: a Q/V frequency band experiment, a space radiation monitor, an advanced startracker and a laser communication terminal. The first and last of these are particularly conspicuous due to their covering of gold-coloured foil.
