On which continent is the main spaceport of the European Space Agency located?

in Europe
in Africa
in South America
in Asia
The Guiana Space Centre is a French and European space­port near Kourou in French Guiana since 1968. The location was chosen as it fulfills the two major ge­o­graph­i­cal re­quire­ments of such a site: it is quite close to the equator, so that the spinning earth can impart some extra velocity to the rockets for free when launched east­ward, and it has open sea to the east, so that lower stages of rockets and debris from launch failures cannot fall on human habi­ta­tion­s.
