Launchers from Europe's Spaceport - Posters and images for download

On 13 February, the European Space Agency will perform the first qualification flight of its brand new Vega launch vehicle.

The very first Vega will lift off from Europe’s spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana, to release nine satellites into orbit and add a new capability to Europe’s fleet of launch systems.

This new capacity will complement the family of launch services already available from French Guiana: the Ariane 5 heavy-lift vehicle and the Soyuz medium-class launcher, introduced October 2011.

To celebrate this first inaugural flight, ESA has produced a set of panels giving an overview of the three launchers from Europe's Spaceport: Ariane 5, Vega and Soyuz; together with a selection of images.

Files can be downloaded free of charge: Vega posters; and photogallery.
