The Planck FM#1 spacecraft is about to enter into the FOCAL-5 facility at CSL. The spacecraft was to be placed in the chamber, which was then to be closed in order to preserve the spacecraft from risks of contamination for the weekend, when an electrical maintenance with power break (meaning no airco, no clean room environment guaranteed) had to take place.
