New Launch Date!

April 28, 2009

Arianespace has reached a decision and our new launch date is Thursday 14th May!

The cause of the delay was a suspected problem with cold gas thrusters on the third stage of the launch vehicle. That’s all now been sorted and we can now move towards launch.

Meanwhile, Planck is now fully tanked up with fuel and cryogens and has been integrated with the launcher. We really are nearly ready to go!
