First half of the 10 Feet long fairing is ready for installation around the two STEREO spacecraft, sitting on the third stage.
Deutsch: Die erste Hälfte einer langen 10 Fuß Nutzlastverkleidung wird um die STEREO Sonden montiert, die auf der 3. Stufe sitzen.
|Description||KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. – Inside the mobile service tower on Launch Pad 17-B at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, the first half of the fairing is moved into place around the STEREO spacecraft. The fairing is a molded structure that fits flush with the outside surface of the Delta II upper stage booster and forms an aerodynamically smooth nose cone, protecting the spacecraft during launch and ascent. The STEREO (Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory) mission is the first to take measurements of the sun and solar wind in 3-dimension. This new view will improve our understanding of space weather and its impact on the Earth. Designed and built by the Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) , the STEREO mission is being managed by NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. APL will maintain command and control of the observatories throughout the mission, while NASA tracks and receives the data, determines the orbit of the satellites, and coordinates the science results. STEREO is expected to lift off Oct. 25.|
