The 200th Ariane for ATV Johannes Kepler was assembled in December 2010, inside the Spaceport’s high Launcher Integration Building, by positioning the core cryogenic stage over the mobile launch table and mating two large solid rocket boosters with the core stage.
ATV-2, now already fuelled and almost ready to go, will be mated with the launcher later this month to start the combined operations between the Ariane and ATV teams, all targeting launch on 15 February 2011.
