Soyuz VS03, the third Soyuz flight from Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana, was transferred to the launch zone on 8 October 2012. The vehicle was rolled out horizontally on its erector from the preparation building to the launch zone and then raised into the vertical position. Soyuz VS03 will lift off on 12 October 2012. The rocket is carrying the next two satellites of Europe’s Galileo navigation system into orbit.
