Flight VA261: Postponement of the launch
It has come to light that there is a risk to the redundancy of a critical function on the Ariane 5. Consistent with safety requirements, Arianespace has decided to postpone the roll-out of the VA261 launch vehicle. Analyses are underway to determine a new launch date.
The launcher and its satellites, Heinrich-Hertz-Satellit and SYRACUSE 4B, are in the final assembly building in stable and safe conditions.
