Mars Pathfinder Preparations
Date: 27 Nov 1996

Workers at Launch Complex 17B on Cape Canaveral Air Station get one final look at the Mars Pathfinder before it is sealed inside a protective payload fairing for flight.

The Pathfinder and its PAM-D upper stage booster are perched atop the Delta II expendable launch vehicle that carried the spacecraft into orbit.
