    Ariane 5 is operated from CNES’s Guiana Space Centre (CSG) in Kourou, French Guiana. Before being shipped across the Atlantic, the launcher elements manufactured all over Europe are sent to the ports of Le Havre, Rotterdam and Bremen. They are then loaded in containers onto two ships, the MN Toucan and MN Colibri. On arrival in French Guiana at the port of Pariacabo, they are trucked to the CSG in an oversize convoy. For safety reasons, Ariane 5 activities are spread across different infrastructures covering more than 2,000 hectares (21 km²) of the CSG’s 69,000 hectares. The main buildings through which Ariane 5 elements pass on their way to launch are detailed below.

    Overcoming the pull of Earth’s gravity to loft even the smallest object into orbit calls for a truly ‘exceptional machine’, akin to a train consisting almost exclusively of tanker wagons feeding a fuel-hungry locomotive.
