At Europe spaceport in French Guiana, everything is being prepared to accommodate Europe’s newest launcher, Ariane 6.

A new Launchpad is under construction and the mobile gantry  protecting the launcher will soon be visible.

The new assembly building dimensions can now be fully seen as the outer shell is almost complete.

Ariane 6 will guarantee Europe’s independent access to space and should consolidate Arianespace’s leading role on the satellites launch market.

First Ariane 6 launch is scheduled for July 2020.

This A & B roll offers a visit of the launch pad under construction in Kourou . It includes an interview with Didier Coulon, ELA 4 Programme Manager, ESA.
