  1. 10-ton Ariane 5 all ready to go

    Publishing date:

    October 11, 2004

    Since 9 August, CNES has been feverishly preparing for the forthcoming launch of Ariane 5 ECA, an uprated version of Ariane 5 offering greater lift capacity. After the failure of the launcher’s first flight in 2002, engineers embarked on a meticulous review. The launcher has now successfully completed ground qualification, but CNES’s teams are not dropping their guard and will be working flat out right up to the lift-off.
