If the Beidou launch is slipping into December, will Alcomsat be able to hold that date? I seem to recall the minimum pad turnaround at Xichang is 2-3 weeks, unless that has decreased in the last few years.

The rumors that I have seen put the BDS launch in late December, after Alcomsat.

Given no other information, such as a satellite or launch vehicle processing delay, can we therefore deduce that this launch could happen as early as December 24-31?

(Awaiting news to support--or not--the deduction.)

Satori:
I doubt that this launch will take place this year.
