Ariane launch postponed by weather
Posted: Sat, Nov 10, 2012, 6:34 AM ET (1134 GMT)
Weather postponed the launch of two communications satellites on an Ariane 5 on Friday. The Ariane 5 was scheduled to lift off late Friday from the spaceport at Kourou, French Guiana, and place the Eutelsat 21B and Star One C3 satellites into orbit. However, upper level winds above the spaceport exceeded limits, scrubbing the launch. Arianespace is now planning the launch for a window that opens at 4:05 pm EST (2105 GMT) Saturday.
