Next Ariane 5 launch delayed to January by satellite issue

Continuing a string of payload delays that have plagued Arianespace's launch manifest in recent months, the French commercial launch provider announced Wednesday its final Ariane 5 flight of the year has been stalled to conduct additional checks on one of its satellite passengers.

The launch was scheduled from Europe's spaceport in French Guiana on Dec. 6 with the ASTRA 5B and Amazonas 4A communications satellites, but the mission is likely to slip to January, officials said.
