LISA gets dressed for a date with destiny

This is a pretty cool time-lapse video.  From ESA, this video is a time-lapse of the process of taking the LISA Pathfinder probe, encapsulating it, mating it to the Vega rocket, and finally launching.  It’s a glimpse at just a small portion of the work needed to get this spacecraft into orbit, but it’s a look we don’t often get to see except in a handful of stills.  It’s beautiful!
