MOSCOW (Sputnik) – A Vega carrier rocket with two satellites that had taken off from the Guyanese Space Center in Kourou, in French Guiana, suffered a failure, resulting in the loss of both satellites, according to launch supplier Arianespace

“8 minutes after takeoff of the Vega VV17 mission, following the first ignition of the upper stage Avum engine, a path deviation has been identified, resulting in the loss of the mission”, Arianespace said in a press release

The company added that data analysis is underway to determine the cause of the mission failure.

Arianespace earlier announced the successful takeoff of the Vega rocket with satellites for Spain and France

The two satellites were to be placed in orbits synchronous with the Sun at orbital inclinations and at slightly different altitudes.

In October, a space industry source said two US satellites carried by a Vega rocket failed to reach orbit after being launched in September from the Kourou space center. According to the source, the satellites did not leave the launch containers installed on the fourth stage of the Vega rocket.
