Looks like the cleanup from the cheating/drug scandal:

As far as the photo, it doesn't look like they are running a launch procedure. It looks like they are running down a fault to me.

Running a launch checklist in the dark? More likely a shutdown. I always had to strap in and lock my chair before running the launch checklist. YMMV, but it seem sooooooooooooo unlikely.

What's with the giant flashlights? We had pen-lights that we had to buy ourselves or we did the procedures by braille.

I know a few of the people who have made it into the "stock photo" archive recently, who are less than pleased that they now get to appear in every negative article about ICBMs...

But the upside is that they get to appear in the Positive stories as well!
