Starry night at the Ariane 6 launch base

This timelapse was filmed under the stars on the Ariane 6 launch base at Europes Spaceport in French Guiana.

Preparations are under way for the arrival of Ariane 6, Europes next-generation launch vehicle. Imagine yourself stepping out of the launcher assembly building or standing on the launch pad in front of the 90-metre high mobile gantry, to look at the stars.

Ariane 6, developed by ESA, has two versions depending on the required performance. This rocket will be capable of a wide range of missions to guarantee independent access to space for Europe and continue four decades of the Ariane adventure.
