Arianespace - A Welcome to ESA's Spaceport
May I introduce you to Arianespace - ESA (European Space Agency ) - Spaceport. Located in Kourou, French Guiana, Arianespace is home to Vega, Soyuz, and Ariane 5 Launcher Systems. In addition to launching Satellites into Low Earth Orbit and Geostationary Orbit for their customers, Arianespace also works in concert with NASA in delivering crew members and supplies (Automated Transfer Vehicle - ATV) to the International Space Station (ISS) now that the Space Shuttle Program has been retired.
Feel free to navigate around the site, visit the Virtual Tour, the Vega, Soyuz, and Ariane 5 Video Centers, launches, and receive "advance notification" of upcoming missions - VIEW LAUNCHES LIVE by entering your e-mail address where indicated.
The next scheduled launch is on March 9th - an ATV to the ISS via the remarkable Ariane 5 rocket.
Welcome to Arianespace!
