The shiny nose-cone standing upright in the rear will then be mounted over the electronics rack in preparation for launch. Left to right are: William O. Wernsing from Williams Laboratories Inc. , Ithaca, NY (electronics engineer with his back to the camera); Klaus Fuhrmann, visiting post-doc from Germany; Jimmie Dunston, technician; Martin Harwit, principal investigator, standing on a table or crate to work on the electronics rack; Henry C. Kondracki, of Pan Monitor Inc. of Trumansburg , NY, mechanical engineer. The man at the right working on the rocket is a member of the rocket servicing crew
