Arianespace Flight 135 is Delayed 24 Hours
The launch of Arianespace Flight 135 has been postponed for one day
following an anomaly in the ground-based infrastructure at the Spaceport in
French Guiana. This anomaly, which affected the telemetry link with the
PAS-1R satellite, occurred during the final countdown on Nov. 14.
As a result, Flight 135 has been delayed for 24 hours. The launch window is
as follows:
Kourou time: From 10:07 p.m. to 11:03 on November 15 
GMT: From 1:07 a.m. to 2:03 a.m. on November 16 
Paris time: From 2:07 a.m. to 3:03 a.m. on November 16 
Washington, D.C. time: From 9:07 p.m. to 10:03 p.m. on November 15
