Take a tour of the Ariane 6 launch complex and its various facilities filmed on 1 March 2020 at Europe's Spaceport in French Guiana.The 8200 tonne 90 metre-high mobile gantry stands over the launch pad. Take a look at the bogies that moved it there. Inside stand two mock-ups of the P120C boosters flanked by work platforms that will enable engineers to access the launch vehicle.Delve deep under the launch table structure to see engineers working on the launch support systems.

Outside, tour past the liquid hydrogen and oxygen stores and on up to the assembly building where a mock-up of the Ariane 6 core stage is waiting at the entrance. Close by are additional service facilities, and the pumping station that will provide the water to quell the exhaust from the motors at liftoff.
