Spectacular sunrise, warm temperatures, slight breeze provided an outstanding start to the day as members of our team along with a multitude of Russian colleagues spanning multiple organizations (it takes a village to launch a rocket) watched in animated anticipation, awe and with a great deal of pride as the Intelsat 31 SC cocooned in the mighty Proton Rocket rolled out from the Breeze-M fueling station at 0630 today bound for Launch Pad 24.

Upon arrival at LP24 the pad team experts sprang into action with their respective tasks to ensure that our ILV went from horizontal to vertical and was ready for upcoming operations; the SSL electrical team performed their required tests with outright synchronicity.

Our team closes out our day with Intelsat 31 standing tall and proud!
