Last nights launch of flight VA201 was aborted during the seven second "startup" of the main engine prior to the lighting of the SRB's and launch.

A new launch date will announced once investigations are complete.

Liebig said the Sentinel 1A and Sentinel 2A satellites, now under development, will not be launched before 2013 and either late 2013 or early 2014, respectively.
Quote
While extending Envisat’s life another year is costly, delaying the launch of Sentinel 1A and 2A by six months will mean the launch of their identical follow-ons, Sentinel 1B and Sentinel 2B, also will be delayed by six months.

The launch of the B-model satellites was always intended to occur 18 months after the A-model spacecraft were successfully in orbit.
That 18-month interval will remain, meaning that the European Commission, which is sharing GMES costs with ESA, need not finance the B-units’ launch services until around 2014.

Those dates are important. The executive commission of the 27-nation European Union runs on seven-year budget cycles, with the next to start in 2014. Details of that budget will not be known until 2013, and no disbursements may be made until mid-2014 at the earliest.

They are called EAP, not SRB !  :D

Thank you for that information.  Do you know which missions those flight numbers refer to?  The Ariane site does not say.

"Long Beach, Calif.-based Sea Launch is planning two launches this year, which will punctuate the company’s new ownership following the bankruptcy proceedings, Karlsen said. The first is the launch of Paris-based Eutelsat’s Atlantic Bird 7 satellite, scheduled for September. A second launch, of the Intelsat 19 satellite, is scheduled for December"

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Satellite fleet operator SES will launch its mixed Ku- and Ka-band Astra 2E satellite aboard a European Ariane 5 rocket in mid-2013, Luxembourg-based SES and the Evry, France-based Arianespace launch consortium announced April 13.

Arianespace to launch the ASTRA 2E satellite
Evry, April 13, 2011

Satellite operator SES has selected Arianespace for the launch of ASTRA 2E.

In the frame of the "Multi Launch Agreement" with Arianespace, the Luxemburg operator of satellites SES has confirmed today to Arianespace the launch of the ASTRA 2E satellite slated for the second semester of 2013.

Weighing more than 6,000 kg. at launch, ASTRA 2E will be placed into geostationary transfer orbit by an Ariane 5 launcher from the Guiana Space Center, Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana.

ASTRA 2E will be built by Astrium using a Eurostar E3000 platform. Fitted with active Ku-band and Ka-band transponders, ASTRA 2E will be positioned at 28.2 degrees East. It will deliver high-power broadcast services across all of Europe and Africa, and will offer a design life of about 15 years.

In 2011, Arianespace is to orbit the ASTRA 1N and SES 2 satellites for SES.

Over the last two decades, Arianespace and SES have developed an exceptional relationship. SES, with its ASTRA satellite platform, operates the leading direct-to-home (DTH) TV broadcast system in Europe, serving more than 135 million households via DTH and cable networks.

Arianespace Chairman & CEO Jean-Yves Le Gall said: “Arianespace is especially proud to have been selected by one of the world’s major satellite operators. We are very proud to serve SES once again and we would like to thank SES for selecting us. This is clear recognition of the quality and competitiveness of our launch Service & Solutions.”

NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden has declared the James Webb Space Telescope [JWST] will not launch until at least 2018.

Bolden made those remarks on 11 April before a Congressional panel in Washington, DC.

The first two of these 18 satellites are scheduled for launch in late October on the inaugural flight of the Europeanized Russian Soyuz rocket from Europe’s Guiana Space Center in French Guiana. In the press briefing, Tajani went so far as to announce the exact timing of the launch — 7 a.m. on Oct. 20, French Guiana time.
