From the top: the fairing positioned above the spacecraft with the telescope still being covered, looking down onto the spacecraft just after uncovering the telescope, starting to lowering the fairing, and the fairing is almost in place showing the mission logos. These are the last images that we will have of the Herschel spacecraft on the ground!
