Arianespace-Soyuz Launch Prep For Pleiades 1B Delayed
Without much additional detail, Arianespace says the launch of the Pleiades 1B aboard an Arianespace-Soyuz vehicle was postponed due to "an anomaly" detected during the countdown.
The update says the launch vehicle and satellite are and will remain in safe standby mode until a resumption of the final countdown.
Lift off is now set for 11:02:50 pm local French Guiana time, 1 December 2012.
