On 1 October 2005, at the Upper Composite Integration Facility at Baikonur, Venus Express was carefully moved over the Launch Vehicle Adaptor by a team of specialist mechanical operators from Alcatel Alenia Space Italia (Italy).
The spacecraft was then lowered gently on to the Launch Vehicle Adaptor, an operation requiring a very high degree of precision.
