Fairing integration complete!


The rocket fairing – essentially the nosecone – has been integrated with the launch vehicle. This means that the lid is on, Planck, and Herschel, are in place, and they should not see the light of the sun again until they are in space.

More preparations continue with launched roll out – the rocket being moved to the launch pad – on Wednesday.

We’re still on target for launch on Thursday.
