The two probes with the solar arrays have been tested and are ready to be transported to Cape Canaveral in Florida. The first thing that needs to be done, is to package them properly so that they don’t get damaged in transit.

First, a satellite image of Cape Canaveral  by, NASA. All the pictures are from NASA.

I was going over the information I have on this mission and started getting confused. There was too much for only a second post. I will do a third post that shows how they put together the rocket to get the probes into space.

At the lab, they are ready to set up the probes to travel.

Next, they lift one of the probes and place it on top of the other.

I’m not sure, because the photos were a tad confusing, but I think they put the top one on and take away the white panels around the bottom one. at least, that what it looks like.

Now. they put the probes into the container that will take them up into space.

Now the probes are in their lovely container.

Tucked away.

Now they lift the lovely cover and will put it on a truck.

The last picture is of the truck heading toward Cape Canaveral.
