Ariane liftoff

According to information from CNA, Czech Republic will probably join the prestigious program of space rockets Ariane and Vega, operated by the European Space Agency (ESA), in early July.

For VZLU this arrangement would mean a cooperation with the biggest European consortium Airbus Safran Launchers, the manufacturer of the rockets. Among other companies from the Czech Republic, VZLU might participate in the development, testing and serial production of parts for the Ariane 6.

In the frame of large astronomical missions organized by ESA, VZLU is currently involved in preparation of a probe Juice flight that will fly to the Jupiter and its moons. More information about the Jupiter mission can be found here.
