As scheduled and right on time at 630 am the ILS Proton rolled out to launch pad 39 with Sirius FM-6 on board!  A perfectly clear day albeit chilly for mid-October, the temperature was just -6° Celsius. Who knew when we packed for Baikonur in August we’d need our winter clothes! Despite the low temps the teams managed the long day and the ILS Proton now stands vertical on the pad, always a great sight!
