    3. 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.

      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.

      Ariane 5 is operated from CNES’s Guiana Space Centre (CSG) in Kourou, French Guiana. Before being shipped across the Atlantic, the launcher elements manufactured all over Europe are sent to the ports of Le Havre, Rotterdam and Bremen. They are then loaded in containers onto two ships, the MN Toucan and MN Colibri. On arrival in French Guiana at the port of Pariacabo, they are trucked to the CSG in an oversize convoy. For safety reasons, Ariane 5 activities are spread across different infrastructures covering more than 2,000 hectares (21 km²) of the CSG’s 69,000 hectares. The main buildings through which Ariane 5 elements pass on their way to launch are detailed below.
