Ariane 5 completes dual launch for UK, Mexico

An Ariane 5 rocket, launching for the seventh time this year, lifted off from French Guiana on Wednesday with a secure communications satellite for the British armed forces and an all-purpose broadcasting platform for the Mexican government.

The heavy-lifting launcher blasted off at 2149 GMT (4:49 p.m. EST) from the ELA-3 launch zone at the Guiana Space Center, a European-run spaceport in French Guiana at the edge of the Amazon jungle. Launch occurred at 6:49 p.m. local time.
