If you’re not planning on doing much tomorrow (Friday) then the launch of Arianne 5 is being broadcast live from French Guiana on the internet. The launch window is Between 10:04 p.m. and 10:59 p.m. on November 9.
Two satellites are being placed into orbit. The Star One C1 commercial communications satellite for Brazilian operator Star One and much more importantly from our point of view the Skynet 5B military communications satellite for our very own M.O.D.
The broadcast usually starts about twenty minutes before lift off (so at about 9.40pm) and the commentary is usually full of interesting facts about the launch and the launch process (also the female commentator has the most wonderful French accent).
