Daily 59 (L-6)

Today the encapsulation of the Swarm satellites has taken place. The both fairing halves were moved from their storage position in 101B, carefully closed around the spacecraft and finally mounted with the upper stage. As the last activity of the day all team members put their names and best wishes for their families at home on the fairing logo. This is the last time the team gets physically in touch with the upper composite of the rocket.
