Sterex images of ATV-4 launch
ESA’s ATV-4 launch images taken by the Sterex experiment. These images provide a stunning vision of the Ariane 5 launch, including liftoff, boosters separation and ATV-4 release.

From 2:03 on, what exactly are these 'sparks' flying around?
How can they change direction so randomly?
I've been waiting for this for a loooooong time!!! Great video!!!
Woop! im watching again! And adding my own sound affects 😀
That was awesome, can't wait for more 😉
Probably to aid in the disengaging of them and separating them from the craft.
Yes, but that doesn't explain how they change direction. (e.g at 2:13)
Europe 🙂 !
