It’s been a busy few days as we wrap up Ascent Unit (AU) operations in Hall 101.  The team signed the payload fairing, and many wrote personal messages to their friends and families at home.  We had to say good-bye to many of the Thales and Eutelsat teams after the PLF signing. The night before we had to say our adieus, we had a May Day BBQ – which was a great send-off for them and a nice welcoming for the incoming teams. Summer is on its way to Baikonur, and we had great weather for the BBQ.  Now we’re just waiting our move to Hall 111.
