This image, taken on 10 May during the fairing installation preparation, shows the Herschel spacecraft standing on the SYLDA 5 support structure that encapsulates the Planck spacecraft at the top of the launcher. The SYLDA 5 is hidden from view by the movable access platform on which personnel are preparing for the fairing installation. Directly below the platform the top of the launcher is just visible.
