Once the SC in its container was safely inside 92A-50 and after the Globus-1M-3/Proton launch from Pad 24, the team began early in the day to offload the SC and perform a fitcheck.  The offload requires highly skilled manpower to meticulously transfer the SC safely off the railcar, unpack it from its container and place it onto the payload adaptor for the fitcheck. 

Within the next week, the SC will undergo rigorous testing.  During this time, the team will gradually adjust to their new surroundings and time-zone changes (11 hours for ILS and 14 hours for Boeing).
