A European space rocket failed minutes after taking off with the loss of both satellites it was carrying. The launch's failure is the second in as many years. The Vega light launcher, which would have placed Spain's first satellite into orbit, malfunctioned roughly eight minutes after launching from a space centre in Kourou, French Guiana. Having taken off at around 11 pm local time (0200 GMT) Monday, the launcher slowed before it encountered an unidentified "anomaly," said Arianespace, the company overseeing the launch.A European space rocket failed minutes after taking off with the loss of both satellites it was carrying.

Vega Mission With Two Satellites Suffers Failure After Launch, Arianespace Says - Sputnik International

BERLIN (AP) - Arianespace said Tuesday that wrong cabling was likely to blame for the failed launch of a rocket that was meant to lift two European satellites into orbit. The European Space Agency said the Vega carrier rocket deviated from its trajectory eight minutes after liftoff from Kourou, in French Guiana, late Monday. France-based Arianespace said an initial investigation showed the first stages of the Vega launch vehicle had functioned as planned. When the final stage of the rocket - known as AVUM - ignited, the spacecraft tumbled off course, leading to a "loss of mission," it said. "A problem related to the integration of the fourth-stage AVUM nozzle activation system is the most likely cause of the loss of control of the launcher," Arianespace said. The company's chief technical officer, Roland Lagier, said data indicated the issue was down to wrongly installed cables in a system controlling the thrusters. He blamed quality control and "a series of human errors," for the problem. "Arianespace expresses its deepest apologies to the clients and the satellite manufacturers involved in this mission," the company said. The Vega rocket was carrying Spain's first Earth observation satellite, called SEOSAT-Ingenio, and TARANIS, a French satellite designed to observe events in the upper atmosphere. Vega is Arianespace's smallest launch vehicle and produced mainly by Italian aerospace company Avio. A previous Vega launch failure, in July 2019, was attributed to a design flaw.
