Vega: 13 launches 13 successes
Europe’s Vega launch vehicle operating from Europe’s Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana, has a flawless record.
Vega serves a wide range of missions and payload configurations, responding to different market opportunities. It is the ideal launcher for most scientific and Earth observation missions, benchmarked to loft 1500 kg into a 700 km-altitude circular orbit at 90° inclination.
Based on this success a more powerful #Vega, Vega-C, now in development is set to launch in mid-2019 offering greater performance at no additional cost.
Vega-C shares technology with Europe’s other new launcher Ariane 6. The P120C solid fuel motor will be used as the first stage for Vega-C and two or four will be used as strap-on boosters for Ariane 6.

I still can’t believe how fast the Vega rocket launches up into the atmosphere,it’s awesome. I suppose that’s the power of solid propellant for you, keep up the great work ESA!
Oooo my good i love there's space
Allons Europe! Extraordinare travail effectué par le Arianespace et la Agence Spatial Européenne.
One of my favourite Rockets!
But ESA really needs to work on the aspect of reusability as well!
Truly, 13 is just a number.
Great job! Love the Vega – small but perfect!
Can it land on its own like SpaceX's Falcon?
In the manga/anime “Planetes”, there is a company named “vega”
Everybody who like space or others should read and watch that!
