Along with the satellite came everything needed to get it ready for launch, as well as some other supplies shipped in by members of the campaign team. After five hours of offloading, the train with the spacecraft and supplies left the airport for the long ride to Building 92A-50, where it arrived at 04:00 Wednesday. After a long evening on the cold tarmac, the team got back to the hotel to warm up, eat a late supper and get some sleep to be ready for the train’s early-morning arrival at 92A-50.
