THE KOUROU SPACEPORT (South America), October 20 (Itar-Tass) —— The launch of a Russian booster Soyuz-ST with two European satellites of the navigation system Galileo was set at 14.30 Moscow time on Friday. “We will make another attempt at launch at 7.30 local time (14.30 Moscow time) on Friday,” Arianespace Director General Jean-Yves le Gall told a press conference in the Guiana space center on Thursday.
The Thursday launch of the booster Soyuz-ST was postponed from the Kourou spaceport, because a fuel leakage was detected from the fuelling system valve in the fuelling of the third stage.
“The fuel leaked from the valve. The automatic fuelling system disconnected in fuelling. We intend to replace the system, which broke down,” he underlined.
