Several campaign milestones have occurred this past week.  The SES-3 (OS-2) spacecraft (SC) was successfully mated to the payload adapter (PLA).  RUAG, Orbital and Khrunichev worked continuously for several hours, performing checks at every new step to be sure all mechanical and electrical connections were secure.   Then it was carefully lifted and placed on top of the Breeze-M/KazSat-2 stack and secured in place.  We now officially have an Ascent Unit for the first ILS Proton shared launch!
