New Website Coming - 4th June 2018

It will be 7 years on March 13th since we launched SpaceVids back in 2011 and 5 years since the launch of the website - Since then the website has outgrown the Space sector and is in dire need of an upgrade. To mark the 5th anniversary we will be launching a brand new stunning website on April 2nd June 4th 2018, The new website will have all of the same videos along with historical data in a fully responsive view.

We have pushed launch back into June by a month to allow us to ensure the historical videos are all imported properly.

Launch of Hot Bird 7 & Stentor on V-157

The 14th Ariane 5 rocket launched from French Guiana on 11th December 2002 at 22:22 UTC. 3 minute into flight a leak in coolant pipes in the first stage caused the nozzle to overheat and the vehicle to veer off-course forcing the automatic self-destruction system to engage. The onboard satellites Hot Bird 7 and Stentor were lost in the ocean.
