Europe's first carbon-fibre rocket fuel tank, Phoebus, developed by @esa, @ArianeGroup  and MT Aerospace, has finished its first round of tests in Augsburg, Germany 🇩🇪.
 
The tank withstood 13 bar of supercooled -196°C liquid nitrogen… no leaks!

The tank is now on its way to Unterlüß 🇩🇪, where it will go through liquid oxygen pressure testing at a Rheinmetall site.
