How to build a Soyuz

Next week, for the first time ever, a Soyuz rocket will launch from a site outside the former Soviet Union. The Soyuz ST-B will carry Europe’s first two Galileo navigation satellites into orbit. Assembly of the launch vehicle took place in September. ESA has put together this nifty 2-minute video showing the assembly process over a period of about a week.The launch is scheduled for 20 October.
