Ariane 6 launch coming soon

Ariane 6, the successor to Ariane 5, is a new milestone in European space autonomy. After 15 years of research and development, this new rocket is now capable of putting different types of satellites into orbit. “It’s not every day that we see a new rocket launch into space. I’m very proud of everyone who has worked so hard to make this flight possible and to ensure Europe’s access to space,” said Toni Tolker Nielsen, ESA’s Director of Space Transport.

He continues: Ariane 6 is a good example of European cooperation and technological prowess. This is a launcher that meets Europe’s needs. With the next launch planned for the end of the year, I am convinced that Ariane 6 will soon reach a regular launch rate for all types of satellites, applications and exploration missions, for the benefit of Europe and humanity.
