An Ariane-5 rocket blasts off on March 23, 2012 from the European space centre at Kourou, French Guiana. An automated craft laden with supplies for the International Space Station (ISS) headed into space in the heaviest launch ever undertaken by Europe. The 20-tonne vessel, named after a 20th-century Italian physicist, Edoardo Amaldi, was taken aloft by a heavyweight version of the Ariane 5 launcher at 01:34 am (0434 GMT).
