Description

By Reuters

Description:
DARMSTADT, GERMANY (OCTOBER 16, 2018) (REUTERS) (SOUNDBITE) (English) ESA FLIGHT DIRECTOR, ANDREA ACCOMAZZO, SAYING: "We actually start from Kourou on board of an Ariane 5 rocket which put us on an interplanetary trajectory, so we fly immediately far away from the Earth. In the first hours, the spacecraft has to become autonomous. It means it has to deploy its solar panels, get energy from the Sun and live on its own without the batteries. Then we take over control and we slowly configure it for the very long cruise phase that we have to reach Mercury. It takes us seven years to reach Mercury, it is a controlled fall towards the Sun, but we will need to slow it down dramatically, actually, to get there."
Dateline: 2018
