The BepiColombo spacecraft stack is lowered to be mounted on the Ariane 5 launcher, which stands below, hidden from view by the movable access platform.

BepiColombo is a joint endeavour between ESA and JAXA, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency. JAXA's Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter is seen at the top of the stack, ESA's Mercury Planetary Orbiter is in the middle, and ESA's Mercury Transfer Module is at the bottom.
