Ariane 5 succeeded Ariane 4, but was not derived from it directly.

Ariane 5 has been refined since the first launch in successive versions, "G", "G+", "GS", "ECA", and most recently, "ES".

ESA originally designed Ariane 5 to launch the Hermes spaceplane, and thus intended it to be human rated from the beginning.

Ariane 5 is a European heavy lift launch vehicle that is part of the Ariane rocket family, an expendable launch system used to deliver payloads into geostationary transfer orbit (GTO) or low Earth orbit (LEO).

Ariane 5 rockets are manufactured under the authority of the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales.

Airbus Defence and Space is the prime contractor for the vehicles, leading a consortium of sub-contractors.

Ariane 5 is operated and marketed by Arianespace as part of the Ariane programme.
