Description
Ariane 1 was the first launch vehicle to be developed by the European Space Agency. It was developed from the L3S Europa launch vehicle replacement design. The development of the vehicle was authorized in July 1973. The cost of program is estimated at 2 billion euros. With lift-off mass of 210,000 kg (460,000 lb), Ariane I was able to put in geostationary orbit one satellite or two smaller of a maximal weight of 1,850 kg (4,100 lb).

The Ariane 1 was a four stage vehicle. The first stage was equipped with 4 Viking engines developed by the Société Européenne de Propulsion. The second had a single Viking engine.

The first launch was on 24 December 1979, and was successful. The second launch, in 1980, failed shortly after launch due to a combustion instability in one of the Viking first stage engines. The third launch succeeded in orbiting three satellites, and the fourth and last qualification launch was also a success.
