Description

Jules Verne ATV fuelling operations get underway at Europe's Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana. As a precaution against the toxic and explosive characteristics of the hydrazine, a series of strict measures are in place, such as the requirement for the ‘scapemen’ - the fuelling specialists – to wear special suits during fuelling operations.
