Although overlapping campaigns can be stressful, it also has its benefits.  While working on the IS-22 and Y1B programs, the ILS IS-22 Mission Team (Team Palme) and the ILS Y1B Mission Team (Team Prytula) were successful at handling the immense pressure of the overlap and did so with grace and poise.  A little “going away” party developed the night before Team Palme headed out of Baikonur after the successful launch of IS-22.  The gathering was not only a way to say farewell to Team Palme, but was also a way to welcome Team Prytula to the start of the Y1B campaign.
