Update, still a mess, roll-out today currently doubtful
Ariane5 sits nicely in BAF so no issue yet (but problems getting people inside to run checks etc.)


(and yes strikes are pretty common in Kourou...just like in France...)

Can someone do a rain dance and delay this one 24 hours. Asking for a friend. ;)


We just blame Chris

Will these setbacks also delay the next flight(s)?

Next Soyuz was on a pretty tight schedule.

@pbdes more blockages now and just heard, no roll-out today, meaning no launch tomorrow.
