  14. Vega launching today (11/7/17)

    Vega is a fun launch. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vega_(rocket) Getting to orbit with solids feels very kerbal. That pitch down circularisation on the third stage. Interesting : Vega-E has a methane expander (98kN) upper stage replacement (MIRA) due 2024. http://www.avio.com/en/vega/vega-e/vega-e-mira-motor/
