Caption: Ariane 5 rocket launch, artwork. The rocket has just launched from the Guiana Space Centre (left), and its two solid-fuel booster rockets have just separated from the main stage. The Ariane 5 launch system is used by the European Space Agency and the French space agency (CNES) to place satellites and other heavy payloads in Earth orbit. Ariane 5 launches, carried out by Arianespace, began in 1996. Over 50 successful launches have taken place since 1998, lifting off from the Ariane facilities (upper left) at the Guiana Space Centre (Centre Spatial Guyanais), near Kourou in French Guiana. The rockets ascend over the Atlantic Ocean (right).
