Vega project logo

This section provides detailed information on Europe’s newest rocket Vega.

This first launch, flight VV01, will mark the completion of nine years of development by ESA and its partners, Italian space agency ASI, French space agency CNES and industry.

Vega will provide Europe with a safe, reliable and competitive capacity to carry science and Earth observation satellites into orbit, while perfectly complementing the heavy Ariane 5 and medium Soyuz rockets already launched from Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana.
