Arianespace Flight ST28 - Launch Sequence
Ariane’s 16th flight marked a key step in the history of Europe’s launcher family. This final Ariane 1 version mission was the first to deploy a payload in Sun-synchronous orbit. Performed #OTD in 1986, it lofted Spot 1, the initial French Earth resources satellite for @CNES.
Countdown to the 40th anniversary of Ariane’s first launch !
Today we look back at the 20th Arianespace launch, which deployed TV-SAT 1...
A multi-milestone mission! #OTD in 2011, Ariane’s 200th flight utilized an Ariane 5 version to send @esa’s no. 2 Automated Transfer Vehicle on its way for servicing the @Space_Station. The launch’s hefty lift performance delivered a record payload mass of 20,061 kg.
Farewell, Ariane 4! This launcher series closed out a highly successful career with Arianespace, performing its final mission #OTD in 2003. From the service entry in 1988, Ariane 4s lofted more than 180 spacecraft passengers with a combined payload mass of over 404 metric tons.
