Weather delays Soyuz mission with European GPS birds

Published: August 21

 

The first attempt to launch Galileo FOC M1 mission on August 21, 2014, was scrubbed less than eight hours before the liftoff scheduled for 16:31:14 Moscow Time (8:31 a.m. EST) due to bad weather.

The Russian space agency, Roskosmos, then posted a press-release announcing that the mission was rescheduled for Aug. 22, 2014, at 16:27:11 Moscow Time (8:27 a.m. EST).

However Arianespace said that "another launch date will be decided depending on the evolution of the weather conditions in Kourou."
