TS successfully concluded the launch campaign for the Vega VV06.

The rocket, which took off in the night between 2 and 3 December, brought the  Lisa Pathfinder into orbit, a scientific payload for the ESA which will try to find experimental proof of the existence of gravitational waves, first hypothesised by Albert Einstein 1915.

Today’s launch, after a 24 hour delay, is one of the most important Vega missions, the sixth consecutive success of the Italian launcher since 2012, and the third of 2015.
