The SAC has landed!

It was a long, stressful day - but all went smoothly thanks to a meticulous plan & a brilliant team. The action started at about 8am, the SAC was released from the payload shortly after 7pm & by 20:45 it was safely parked in the loading bay outside the clean room.

All the parents are holding up reasonably well (although severe sleep disruptions have set in) & the baby seems happier than it's been in a long time. A suitable name has yet to be decided upon - some of the suggestions aren't particularly fit for publication. Mixed feelings were admitted in the morning when we came in & found it sitting exactly where we'd left it...

Far too many photos to post them all, but here are some of the highlights - see how many bodies you can spot tangled up in/on the tracker!
