ESA / Enabling & Support / Space Transportation

A mock-up of Europe’s Vega launcher first stage was transferred on 26 October from the Booster Integration Building to the Vega Launch Zone at Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana.

This marks the first step towards the operational readiness of the Vega launch system and paves the way for next year’s qualification flight.

The start of the combined testing phase involved the mechanical validation of several elements of the launch vehicle and the ground segment.
