Germany calls for redesign of next-generation Ariane

spaceflightnow.com said:

Less than a year after selecting the design of Europe's future Ariane 6 launcher, government ministers will meet in Geneva on Friday to iron out lingering questions over the rocket after Germany's top space official last week called for the current form of the Ariane 6 to be ditched in favor of another configuration.

Johann-Dietrich Woerner, chairman of the executive board of the German Aerospace Center, or DLR, said Thursday that Europe could not afford proposed launcher developments presented to European Space Agency member states at a council meeting on March 19 and 20.
