This is how Ariane 6’s boosters work ๐Ÿš€ #shorts


Europeโ€™s new rocket Ariane 6 has three main stages each with their own engines.

Ariane 6 uses one of the worldโ€™s most powerful single-piece boosters, the P120C boosters, to get off the ground.

These motors run on 142 000 kg of solid fuel, which is completely consumed in just two minutes, reaching 53 km altitude when they are eventually discarded.

We can choose to either have two or four boosters per Ariane 6 launch. For many missions two boosters is more than enough to get into space, but if you need to launch heavier satellites or want to reach destinations farther away from Earth four boosters provide the extra kick to do the trick.

We now have a target launch date! We are currently aiming to get Ariane 6 off the ground on 9th July, be sure to set your reminders and follow along for more updates.
