ATV-4 cargo loading underway

A fabulous set of photos from Kourou!

The loading process for ATV Albert Einstein has begun at the Guiana Space Centre. During January 2013, the big M1 cargo bags are being loaded into ATV as part of nominal cargo loading. A second opportunity for cargo loading comes towards the end of March, when ATV will already be vertical on top of the Ariane launcher.
