Ariane tests space truck sequence

The Ariane rocket has used a commercial satellite launch to test the engine sequence needed to loft Europe's forthcoming space truck, the ATV.

The rocket flew as normal on Friday to orbit two communications satellites, but it then re-ignited its upperstage to check its performance.

A re-ignition sequence will be required on the launch that hurls the ATV on a path to the space station in January.

From 2008, the truck will become one of the station's main resupply vessels.
