ATV Albert Einstein is further prepared for launch at Europe's spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana.
The pressurised, habitable module with its cone shaped docking port is protected with a red cover. Later it will be turned upright and lifted onto the service module. The red cover will be removed before flight.
When ATV Albert Einstein is ready to fly it will be launched on an Ariane 5 launcher carrying 2380 kg of fuel and 6.6 tonnes of cargo to the International Space Station.
