ESA's Intermediate eXperimental Vehicle, IXV, is slated to launch on a Vega rocket in early November to flight-test the technologies and critical systems for Europe's future automated re-entry vehicles returning from low orbit. In this video, the IXV is tilted and turned along and around all three axes at ESA's Technical Centre, ESTEC, in the Netherlands to measure its centre of gravity and moments of inertia. Credit: ESA
