Technicians adjust multiple layer thermal insulation on the first flight model of Europe's MetOp polar weather satellite during preparation for acoustic testing at Intespace's facilities in Toulouse, France, in February 2005.
MetOp-A was launched on 19 October 2006 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, on a Soyuz ST rocket with a Fregat upper stage.
