  • ATV 5 Georges Lemaître

For its third Ariane 5 mission of the year, ArianeGroup launched the fifth Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV), dubbed “Georges Lemaître”, for the European Space Agency (ESA). Like the first four ATVs, launched in March 2008, February 2011, March 2012 and June 2013, the ATV-5 will play a vital role in bringing supplies to the International Space Station (ISS).

Reflecting the excellence of European space transport, encompassing both the launcher and the payload, this latest mission spotlights Europe’s key role in major international space programs.
