Photos: Soyuz Rollout & O3b Payload Integration

A “Europeanized” Soyuz rocket rolls out to the ELS Launch Pad at the Guiana Space Center after undergoing assembly at the MIK integration facility in preparation for the launch of the fourth set of O3b broadband satellite. With Soyuz taking its spot atop the ELS pad, the way was clear for the encapsulated satellites to be moved to the pad and hoisted atop the Soyuz rocket for a final set of testing operations before launch day.
