SC Fueling Completed!

ILS Launch Team

As usual the Boeing Propulsion team and accompanying support crews brought their “A” game for the fueling operations.  With early starts and long days the team has successfully loaded both propellant components into the Centenario SC.  Due to the hazardous nature of the operations, all non-essential personnel were relocated to the hotels and had two days of down time.  Those team members lucky enough to have down time took the opportunity to head to town to do shopping and try out some of the local restaurants. Others remained hard at work from the hotels, conducting daily meetings, producing reports, ensuring launch campaign operations were moving forward and on target. Typically, to celebrate the successful completion of fueling, a good old fashioned American BBQ is held to salute the team for a job well done unfortunately,  Mother Nature had other ideas for the weather so the celebratory bbq will be held later this week.
