Solar Arrays under Test

After re-generating their working force with a day off the teams today began the week with electrical checks on the Launch Vehicle as well as the Spacecraft. Also, the solar arrays of the Sentinel-5p satellite were checked with regard to their proper functioning while the fueling team continued their preparatory works. The fueling experts underwent a training related to the operations of the crane in the Cleaning Room.

Today is another major milestone as we received permission from the military to fuel the satellite.

By this evening the satellite was fuelled and pressurisation has started.

As this is a hazardous operation the rest of the team had to stay at the hotel.
