Well done Ariane! 60 in a row!

ATV-5 successfully launched yesterday on an Ariane 5. That’s 60 in a row! Unmatched record for any launch vehicle!

ATV-5 will now spend two weeks in orbit doing experiments, and then will dock with the space station, where it will stay for six months, before being filled with rubbish and de-orbited to burn up!

Here is the ATV-5 info kit!

 

There she goes……………
