In Space Systems International's Payload Processing Facility at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, technicians extend a solar array on the Aquarius/SAC-D spacecraft to test the release mechanism sequence for the array using signal commands. Following final tests, the spacecraft will be integrated to a United Launch Alliance Delta II rocket in preparation for the targeted June launch. Image credit: NASA/VAFB April 28, 2011
