Dragon 1:400 Ariane 5G ESA Space Rocket w/Launch Pad
The European Space Agency is not as well known as NASA, but maintains an active space program. The primary space rocket it uses is the Ariane 5 - an extendable launch system that can deliver payloads into geostationary or low earth orbits. Although the first Ariane 5 test flight in June 1996 was a failure, it has since completed a total of 58 launches. It is set to continue until 2015.
