[LIVE] Ariane 5 launch, September 5

Tuesday September 5, Ariane 5 was supposed to orbit two telecommunications satellites, Intelsat 37e & BSAT-4a from the Guiana Space Center. In the last seconds of the countdown as the Vulcain cryogenic main stage engine was being ignited, the checkout process detected an anomaly on the launcher, interrupting the final countdown. Arianespace will set a new launch date as soon as possible.
