MOSCOW, January 21. /TASS/. The Roscosmos State Corporation has confirmed the postponement of the launch of a Proton-M carrier rocket with the Eutelsat 9B satellite from January 28 to January 30, 2016, Roscosmos said on its website.
"The launch will be made from the launch area of site No.200 of the Baikonur Space Center on January 30, 2016 at 01:20 Moscow Time," the corporation said in a press release.
Initially, the launch was set for January 25, but was then postponed until January 28. Roscosmos also confirmed the reason for the delay earlier announced by American company International Launch Services (ILS) - bad weather conditions.
ILS earlier said in a statement on its website: "The launch of a Proton launch vehicle with the EUTELSAT 9B satellite has been delayed two days due to weather-related logistical issues associated with the nominal delivery of the second stage solid retro rockets."
"The launch vehicle processing continues without any technical issues, including the retro rockets, and the spacecraft remains in a safe configuration at the launch site," it said.
"The launch has been rescheduled for Saturday, January 30 at 04:20:09 local time in Baikonur," the statement said.
"The satellite was built for Eutelsat of Paris, France by Airbus Defence and Space of Toulouse, France," it said.
