Why is the webcast not working for me?  "Cannot load M3U8:  crossdomain access denied."


I have no idea what that means.  I've watched ESA webcasts before.  The same thing happened yesterday.

Even on this page?

Yes, I got the same message.
The Space Age is just starting to get interesting.

Do the satellites remain on internal power during a hold like this?

I think the long launch window is determined based on how long the spacecrafts can stay on internal power.

What kind of wastrels would dump a perfectly good booster in the ocean after just one use?
