Description
English: The now (as of 2003) decommissioned Ariane 4 launch pad. To the left is the moving protection building which shielded the rocket from weather during launch operations. To the right is the tower containing the umbilical fuelling and power lines, as well as a lightning conductor. In the centre foreground is the rocket transport vehicle which moved the upright rocket from the assembly buildings to the pad. The round structure behind is the water tower used for cooling and acoustic dampening on launch.
The Ariane 5 pad is about half a kilometre to the left of this photo. The new Vega launch pad, under construction as of 2007, is obscured by the umbilical tower. The Soyuz pad is being constructed several kilometres further north from here. The assembly buildings are to the south, behind the camera.
