We did it! The new German radar satellite TanDEM-X is packed and prepared for dispatch – the upper stage of the launcher with its precious contents stands ready. This is the result of impressive team performance. A group picture of all those who have worked towards this goal in recent days will not go amiss here.

And the packing started immediately. Containers are loaded with equipment that is no longer needed in Baikonur. They will travel back to Lake Constance by rail after the launch campaign. Precision is important here too, although the work is heavy.
