Spacecrafts are developed, tested and fully assembled on Earth and transported in one piece by a launch vehicle to their respective places of operation. Each component must be able to withstand the extreme conditions during the launch phase. In most cases, in addition to complex test procedures, this leads to an oversized structure of the spacecraft components, because in orbit they experience only a fraction of the stresses they must endure during rocket launch.
