The Ariane 6, Europe’s new heavy lift launch vehicle, is set to replace the highly successful Ariane 5. This modular and agile vehicle features a reignitable upper stage, enabling it to execute multiple missions in different orbits during a single flight. Developed by ArianeGroup and its European partners, the ESA program aims to boost Arianespace’s efficiency and flexibility for a variety of commercial and institutional missions. A final qualification test of the launch system is scheduled, with a rehearsal on June 18 where the Ariane 6 will be fueled and defueled on its ELA-4 launch pad.
