In 2022 the first ever rocket to be launched into orbit from Europe is taking off.
In a world-first, a team of International scientists, test pilots and entrepreneurs are launching a rocket - from the back of a 747 Jumbo Jet. If they succeed it could pave the way for Europe to become a space superpower, providing a faster, cheaper, sustainable and local way to get its satellites to space.
Will they succeed? It’s a gamble, and they risk a multimillion euro payload.
