Ariane 5 Booster Undergoes Test Fire
2012-05-26 03:00:24

An Ariane 5 solid-propellant booster was test-fired on Thursday, May 24 at Europe´s Spaceport in French Guiana to help improve the reliability of Europe´s heavy launcher. The firing was performed in the booster engine stand, specifically designed for the vertical testing of motors at the site. The motor burned for about 135 seconds, simulating the firing time during an Ariane 5 flight, and delivered a mean thrust of 700 t. One of the goals was to prove new, thinner thermal...
