Constellation Auriga with halo effect

The constellation Auriga (the Charioteer). The brightest star seen here is Capella, a yellow giant some 48.5 light years distant. Just to the right of Capella is Epsilon Aurigae, a famous eclipsing binary about 3, 200 light years away. The visible star of Epsilon Aurigae is an extremely luminous supergiant, with an invisible partner, possibly a black hole. Auriga is a northern hemisphere constellation, near Orion in the Milky Way. The images of the stars of the constellation have been enhanced by a photographic technique

Artwork of the Ariane 5 launcher with 2 satellites Featured 16 Mar 2005 Print

Artwork of the Ariane 5 launcher with 2 satellites

Ariane 5 rocket. Artwork showing a cut-away view of the European Ariane 5 launcher. Ariane 5 consists of a large first stage (lower 2/3rds of the central vehicle) flanked by two solid rocket boosters, with a smaller second stage (top 1/3rd). Inside the second stage can be seen a pay- load of two satellites. Most of the first stage is taken up by the vast liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen tanks, which feed the single Vulcain motor (bottom left). The second stage is powered by a DASA engine which uses storable propellants (dinitrogen tetroxide and monomethyl hydrazine). Ariane 5 may be used to launch satellites or a shuttle into orbit or for interplanetary missions
