ATV Launches to Space Station

2 posts in this topic

Another record-breaking Ariane 5 success for Arianespace: ATV Albert Einstein is on its way to the International Space Station

Ariane 5 “flexed its muscle” today with another record-setting Arianespace heavy-lift mission that orbited Europe’s fourth Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) for servicing of the International Space Station.

Arianespace’s workhorse launch vehicle lifted off from the Spaceport precisely at 6:52 p.m. local time in French Guiana, which was the necessary timing for its ATV passenger’s orbital phasing to dock with the crewed orbital facility.

Ariane 5 delivered a total lift performance of 20,252 kg., which included 19,887 kg. for ATV – making this resupply spacecraft the largest payload ever to be orbited by an Ariane launcher.
