The two payload fairing half-shells are moved into position around Insat 3C during its encapsulation process inside the S3B clean room at Europe's Spaceport. The lightweight fairing will be jettisoned during the Ariane 4's ascent, once the launcher has passed through the dense layers of the Earth's atmosphere.
The launch is scheduled for 23 January 2002. Photo: ESA/CNES/Arianespace
