The 250th flight of an Ariane launch vehicle was another success.

The Ariane programme has effectively put Europe on the map in the worldwide commercial satellites launch market.

Next 24 December will mark the 40th anniversary of the first Ariane Launch from Europe’ Spaceport in French Guiana and the situation has evolved along the years.

An opportunity to look at what has been achieved from Kourou and what can be expected for the future of Space Transportation in Europe.
