The Space Head Unit (SHU made up of the Integral satellite, separation systems, adaptors, fairing and Proton upper stage), was rolled out on 10 October at 10:15 Baikonur time. This was a short transport to the launcher integration building, about 500 m away. But as always with a fuelled satellite and an upper stage, proper safety precautions were implemented, with fire brigade and ambulance present. Integral is scheduled to be launched from Baikonur in Kazakhstan on 17 October 2002.
