Closeup views of Ariane 5 at liftoff. Umbilicals are attached to the rocket. They top up the fuel tanks and keep the launch vehicle in a ready state on the launch pad. In the moments of liftoff the Vulcain engine is ignited and pyrotechnic connections fire to separate the umbilicals that pull away to clear the path to space. Ariane 5 leaves the launch pad and enters the evening sky at Europe's Spaceport in French Guiana.
