ESA: Herschel and Planck Launch Postponed
News Release • April 20, 2009
Due to an anomaly discovered during tests on a subassembly identical to the one on the Ariane 5 launcher, Arianespace has decided to carry out additional checks which will take a few days.
A new launch date for Herschel and Planck will be announced shortly.
The two satellites are in perfect condition at the launch site in Kourou, French Guiana.
