Cosmodrome Plesetsk, June 24 (L-6):

Sorry, no pictures, today. However, the Launch Vehicle processing went on
according to schedule.

It included removal of the passive thermal cover which was used during the
transport to the pad, hoisting of the Upper Composite from the seventh level
of the service tower onto the booster, removal of the hoisting devices,
mechanical and electrical mating between booster and Upper Composite and
mounting of the container extension which surrounds the Upper Stage and the
lower part of the payload fairing.

The spacecraft team has shifted its working place to the hotel, launch day
procedures and documents are finally discussed and adjusted.
