The Ariane 5 fairing being lowered over JCSAT-10 and the SYLDA 5 payload dispenser on which the satellite is mounted. The JCSAT-10 / SYLDA encapsulation took place in the Final Assembly Building (Bâtiment d'Assemblage Final - BAF) at Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana on 3 August 2006. The photograph was taken with a wide-angle lens which caused the curved distortion of the image.
