Reschedule of Soyuz launch for today at 18h54 GMT

Dear follower,

yesterday, the Russian rocket launcher, Soyuz should lift-off from the Kourou Space Center in French Guiana. However, potential winds shear at 12 to 14 kilometers in altitude forced the delay. The launch has been rescheduled for today, June 25 at 18h54 GMT.

The Soyuz will carry four satellites for O3b Networks, which will provide broadband service to developing countries. The O3b Networks satellites are designed and built by Thales Alenia Space to become a part of the first medium Earth orbit satellite constellation providing broadband internet access in remote areas of the world.
