Preparations for Integral launch at Baikonur in Kazakhstan, scheduled for 17 October 2002. SCAPEe suits are used to protect the fuelling operators from the toxic effects of hydrazine. Working in these suits for long periods of time is cumbersome and a lot of preparation time is spent making sure breathing, wireless communications and basic suit adjustment are as comfortable as possible.
