Don’t expect to see Adeline land—or attempt to land—any time soon. Airbus says it will be ready between 2025 and 2030. In the meantime, the company is perfecting its Ariane 6 rocket. You probably didn’t even realize that the same company that makes A380s also makes rockets—and they’re pretty good rockets, too.


Correction (12:00 pm): An earlier version of this post erroneously referred to Airbus as a British company. It is French. The post also implied that Airbus makes the Dreamliner. Boeing makes the Dreamliner.
