LAUNCH! Vega C's first commercial mission, lofting the Pléiades Neo 5 and 6 Earth-observation satellites to a Sun-synchronous orbit (SSO) from the ELV pad at the Guiana Space Centre.Overview:nasaspaceflight.com/2022/12/vega-c…Livestream:youtube.com/watch?v=CokbWo…
Vega C had an issue during second stage flight. This is not good.
On to the third stage but this is a failure.
Yikes. Really decided to kill the flight there. Wonder if that's a designed "Ok, we've lost it, let's get this down over this corridor".
LOS. Will already be back down into the ocean. Fair play to Arianespace for showing live telemetry and not hitting the "end stream" button.
An underpressure was noticed with the second stage as an initial cause for the failure.
Watching the replay back, you can see when the second stage failed. About T+3:27.
Flight VV22: Failure of the missionApproximately 2 minutes and 27 seconds after liftoff an anomaly occurred on the Zefiro 40 thus ending the Vega C mission.Data analyses are in progress to determine the reasons of this failure.A media briefing is organized Wednesday, December 21 at noon local time (3:00 pm UTC) with the videoconference platform Zoom via the link below:https://arianespace.zoom.us/j/65576582999
