Expansion Time

French Guiana will soon see Soyuz launches from its Ariane 5 launch complex. The location will allow the rockets to loft nearly twice as much payload as their normal launch pads, located much further north in the former USSR. Go for the brief, stay for the mangled description of why this is so ("spin is felt")?
