Caption

The Ariane 5 launch director sitting in the CDL3 launch control room at the European Space Agency's launch site at Kourou, French Guiana. Known as COEL (Chef des Operations de l'Ensemble du Lancement), the launch director is responsible for the launch operations for the Ariane 5, from fuelling the main tanks on the launch pad until the rocket has reached its prescribed orbit. COEL is seen here in front of several computer displays showing parts of the rocket, and is holding a printed checklist. The first flight of the Ariane 5 system is due in early 1996.
