Astra 3B launch delayed

The launch of SES Astra’s latest satellite Astra 3B was postponed on Friday due to an anomaly in a launcher subsystem.

The launch was scheduled to take place between 07.03 and 07.52 local time from the Kourou Space Centre in French Guiana on Friday but launch service provider, Arianespace, decided to execute technical replacements and to postpone the launch for several days. Astra’s latest satellite is set to be located at 23.5° East.
