UAE's Falcon Eye 1 satellite has been lost in space after the rocket that was launching it experienced a failure.

The UAE Space Agency was using the launch services of a company called Arianespace and their rocket, Vega, to send off Falcon Eye 1 to orbit from the Guiana Space Centre.

A few minutes after the launch, which took place at 5.53am, there were reports of loss of telemetry data, and shortly after Arianespace announced that the mission was lost.
