8° Ariane A series of launch vehicles developed by ESA (European Space Agency). The decision to develop an autonomous European access to space was taken at the same meeting, in Brussels in July 1973, at which ministers also agreed to set up the European Space Agency. The maiden flight of Ariane 1 on December 24, 1979, marked Europe’s arrival on the international satellite launch market. Changing payload requirements prompted the development of the Ariane 2 and 3 in the early 1980s, then the Ariane 4, and most recently the Ariane 5.

During the first of three moonwalks, Cernan and Schmitt planted an American flag that had hung in Mission Control since Apollo 11. They also set up the most advanced ALSEP of the Apollo program and drove the LRV to Steno Crater. On their second excursion—the longest on the Moon to date—the astronauts drove a round-trip of 19 km to South Massif. The final outing, and the last by an Apollo crew, took them to North Massif. Numerous records were set on the mission, including the first flight of a scientist-astronaut—geologist Schmitt—who had been selected by NASA with no prior piloting skills.
