Workers and the MESSENGER Spacecraft
Date: 21 Jul 2004

In the mobile service tower at Launch Complex 17-B, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, workers move a panel into place above the MESSENGER (Mercury Surface, Space Environment, Geochemistry and Ranging) spacecraft. The overhead panel suspended an environmental curtain around the spacecraft while in the tower before encapsulation.

MESSENGER was built for NASA by the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Md. Processing is being done at Astrotech Space Operations in Titusville, Fla
