On Tuesday 29 January, ESA Programme managers and specialists from industry gathered at ESA's Head Office in Paris to share with the Media a thorough overview of the programme. They also took stock of the current status of the spacecraft and lead the Media through the upcoming phases: the launch, the journey to the International Space Station, the delicate manoeuvres up to docking and the complex operations related to this very challenging mission. A scale model of the ATV spacecraft stands on the right.
