ASTRA 1N roars into space!

Despite a delay due to the unfavourable weather conditions in Kourou, ASTRA 1N was successfully launched on August 6th at 19:52 local time (0:52 CEST, August 7th) on board an Ariane 5 rocket from the European Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana.

Congratulations to the SES launch team and to our service provider Arianespace, for the impeccable mission.

In the coming weeks, the spacecraft will be subject to in-orbit testing.
