Today, the mission teams continue to ready for the launch of Sirius FM-6 here in Baikonur.   Both the spacecraft (SC) and launch vehicle (LV) are safe and remain in stacked configuration at the launch pad.  The SC underwent health checks today with no issues.  As we wait to receive word regarding the satellite manufacturer’s ground station network, the teams decided to head into town for a little bowling. Yes, there is actually bowling alley in Baikonur!
