Update 11.02.2015: IXV completed its research flight. The vehicle separated from Vega at an altitude of 348 km and continued up to 413 km, then it recorded a vast amount of data from more than 300 advanced and conventional sensors while reentering from this suborbital path. IXV flew a flawless reentry and splashed down in the Pacific Ocean just west of the Galapagos islands. Flotation balloons are now keeping IXV afloat while the recovery vessel hurries to pick it up. It will be returned to Europe for detailed analysis in ESA's technical centre, ESTEC, in the Netherlands.
