Hi-Res JPEG (171 KB)

Brian Buchholz (left) and Lorna Hess-Frey (front, right) carefully maneuver the Flyby spacecraft to its stacked position over the Impactor spacecraft. The spacecraft pair will be shipped in the stacked configuration from Ball Aerospace to Cape Canaveral, Fla. in October. This was the second, and final stack procedure that the spacecraft had to undergo before launch.
