Final assembly of the very first Soyuz to be launched from French Guiana on 20 October began on 12 September in the assembly and testing building – known by its original ‘MIK’ Russian acronym. The three-stage Soyuz ST-B comprises four first-stage boosters clustered around the core second stage, topped off by the third stage. The rocket will carry the first two satellites of Europe’s Galileo navigation system into orbit.
This time-lapse movie shows the assembly activities between 13-19 September 2011.
