Launch Of The Ariane 5 Rocket Delayed For “Additional Inspections”

The launch of the European rocket Ariane 5, which was scheduled for July 28, was postponed until July 31, “so that additional technical inspections can be carried out”, announced today a French company Arianespace.

The rocket will transport three communications satellites from the operators Intelsat and B-SAT into space, remaining as the launch site for Kourou, in French Guinaa, and at 6:30 pm (9:30 pm in Lisbon).

“The Ariane 5 and the three satellites on board are in a stabilized configuration and in total security”, guaranteed the company Arianspace.

This will be the third Ariane 5 operation in 2020, although the launch of the Vega rocket, a smaller version of the Ariane, was also postponed earlier this month due to unfavorable weather conditions.

According to the company Arianspace, the launch of Vega was scheduled for August 17.
