NASA Mars InSight Countdown to T-Zero | KSC

Episode 2: Into the Fairing
The launch campaign heats up for NASA’s InSight spacecraft and United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. The Mars-bound probe is secured inside its protective payload fairing, then moved overnight to the launch pad, where it’s lifted into position atop the waiting Atlas V. Also on board are two small communications-relay satellites—MarCO-A and MarCO-B—intended to become the first CubeSats to venture into deep space.
