This unusual underside view provides a look under the payload fairing - and into the Sylda 5, on which the first payload to be launched, the INSAT 3A is mounted. The Sylda 5 will fit over the top of the second payload, GALAXY XII to complete the payload 'stack'. Both payloads will be launched by an Ariane-5 launcher from Europe's spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana.
