"Europe has named Thursday 9 February as the day it intends to launch its new Vega rocket for the very first time.
The 30m-tall vehicle has been developed to take payloads up to 1.5 tonnes into a polar orbit, and will fly from the Kourou spaceport in French Guiana.
The project has been led by Italian industry and is years behind on its original schedule.........
