After its successful qualification flight on 13 February 2012, Vega is on its launch pad on its way for its second mission. With this mission Vega will show its full potential with 3 different payloads: Proba Vegetation, the Estonian Cubesat and a commercial satellite, VNRD-sat for Vietnam. This 3 payload delivery is made possible thanks to a new multi payload system called VESPA.
