Winds delay launch of Arianespace rocket

Winds delay launch of Arianespace rocket

The launch of two communications satellites from French Guiana has been postponed because of windy weather.
Arianespace officials say winds were too strong Tuesday to launch an Ariane 5 rocket with satellites for Spanish and South Korean companies.
Arianespace is the commercial arm of the 13-country European Space Agency.
It said in an online statement that the rocket was on standby for a possible countdown late Wednesday.
