A Vega rocket lifts off from the ESA's base in Kourou, French Guiana on February 11, 2015, bearing the Intermediate eXperimental Vehicle (IXV) on a 100-minute test mission. The European Space Agency (ESA) said it had launched a prototype craft designed to return to Earth at the end of its mission, a key goal in space strategy. The sub-orbital mission will test technologies that ESA hopes will lead to a reusable spacecraft. AFP PHOTO / JODY AMIET (Photo by JODY AMIET / AFP) (Photo by JODY AMIET/AFP via Getty Images)
