Description

Both IXV and Vega are now ready on the Launchpad at Centre Spatial Guyanais. Filled and covered with sensors this spacecraft will give Europe the chance to test new re-entry technologies during its flight. Getting a spacecraft off the ground is hard enough, but getting it back to Earth safely is a real challenge. With IXV ESA wants to test new aerodynamic solutions, innovative structures and materials, advanced guidance navigation and control laws and understand how they behave under the very harsh conditions of atmospheric re-entry.
