  6. P80- a newcomer in the solid propulsion stakes

    Date de publication:

    27 Septembre 2006

    Europe’s family of launchers is set to grow, with a kid brother for Ariane 5 called Vega expected some time late next year. Vega is designed for the launch of small satellites, complementing its larger stable mate. The Vega project was initiated by ESA in 1999. CNES is leading development of the P80 engine that will power the 1st stage of the new launcher. The P80 will in fact carry 88 tonnes of solid fuel needed to get the light Vega launcher off the ground.

  7. Ariane turns 25

    Date de publication:

    3 Janvier 2005

    24 December 1979 at 17:14 and 38 seconds, the first Ariane launcher fired its engines. For the first time in the history of the space adventure, a three-stage-to-orbit launcher, capable of carrying satellites weighing nearly 1 tonne, successfully lifted off from Europe’s spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana. Emotions ran high among those watching this landmark event in the history of space. But the road to success wasn’t all straight and smooth, since the launch had to be scrubbed twice before the big day, seriously sapping teams’ morale.

  16. An innovative project to mitigate orbital pollution

    Date de publication:

    4 Juillet 2005

    Is space set to become as polluted as Earth? Orbital pollution is a reality: the amount of debris orbiting round Earth is growing, calling for a “ clean-up ” of near-Earth space. The project developed by Christophe Bonnal (CNES Launchers Directorate) seeks to contribute to sustainable development of near-Earth space by using an innovative technique to deorbit the largest items of debris. Last June, the project was honoured by the Aeroclub de France with its Prize for Technological Innovation.
