SHALOM is now expected to launch in 2025:

Agenzia Spaziale Italiana Annual Report 2020 [dated Sept. 2021]

Quote
2025
SHALOM
Technology: Hyperspectral
Operation: 5 years

Piano Triennale delle Attività 2021-2023 [dated Mar. 10]

Quote
SHALOM (Spaceborne Hyperspectral Applicative Land And Ocean Mission) is a mission conceived jointly with the Israeli Space Agency which involves the construction of a system based on a single satellite in low orbit with a platform provided by Israel and an Italian hyperspectral instrument. Once operational, the SHALOM system will extend the operational capabilities of PRISMA by also enabling commercial services. Based on the results of Phase B1 in progress, the detailed design and implementation of the system will be launched.

On the basis of the results of the mission study (Phases A and B1 activities in progress by the UIC Unit - Sheet S10-A), the next phases for the construction of the Italo-Israeli infrastructure are expected to start over the course of the three-year period. (Phases B2 / C / D / E1 in charge of the UOT unit) with full operations starting from 2025.

Cross-post; my bold:
From the JWST Blog:

The James Webb Space Telescope team is working a communication issue between the observatory and the launch vehicle system. This will delay the launch date to no earlier than Friday, Dec. 24. We will provide more information about the new launch date no later than Friday, Dec. 17.

SFN Launch Schedule has been updated (bolds mine):

Quote
Late March | Soyuz • Galileo 29 & 30

Launch time: TBD
Launch site: ELS, Sinnamary, French Guiana

An Arianespace Soyuz rocket, designed VS28, will launch on a mission from the Guiana Space Center in South America. The Soyuz will carry two Galileo full operational capability satellites for Europe’s Galileo navigation constellation. The Soyuz-2.1b (Soyuz ST-B) rocket will use a Fregat upper stage. [Dec. 14]

Combined with the previous post, the OneWeb launch from Kourou in March seems to have been changed into a Baikonur launch.

Does this mean 1 Soyuz-ST-B and 1 Fregat-MT, already purchased, or purchased and delivered to Kourou, are free for another Soyuz mission launching from Kourou?

Could we see one more payload swapped from Ariane 6 to Soyuz?

Cross-post; one day JWST launch delay to Christmas (December 25) 🎄
Launch is moved to Christmas Day, December 25 due to weather:

Webb: new target launch date

Quote from: ESA

Today, 21 December 2021, the Launch Readiness Review for flight VA256 to launch the James Webb Space Telescope has been successfully completed and concluded with the authorisation to perform the launch vehicle rollout and the start of the launch chronology.

However, due to adverse weather conditions at Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana, flight VA256 – initially scheduled for 24 December – is being postponed.

The new targeted launch date is 25 December, as early as possible within the launch window 12:20–12:52 GMT / 13:20–13:52 CET.

Tomorrow evening, local time in Kourou, another weather forecast will be issued in order to confirm the date of 25 December. The Ariane 5 launch vehicle and Webb are in stable and safe conditions in the final assembly building.

SN, Pléiades Neo 4 satellite enters service without a hitch, Dec 16

Quote
The final two satellites [Pléiades Neo 5 and 6] in the constellation are currently in qualification tests ahead of their launch on an upgraded Vega C next year [2022], Lombard said.

The four Pléiades Neo are identical to each other apart from the laser links that will be fitted onto the two coming next year, enabling the constellation to increase data transmission speeds for ordering and downloading imagery.

Cross-post:
TASS reporting that the first OneWeb launch in 2022 is from the Guiana Space Center.
https://tass.ru/kosmos/13301243
February 20 Kourou launch becomes OneWeb Flight 13.

January 27 Baikonur launch (apparently) becomes OneWeb Flight 14, sometime after February 20.



Add cross-post:
TASS reports that Roscosmos has 11 launches of foreign spacecraft in 2022. One of these launches is from Vostochny, three from Kourou, and the remaining seven from Baikonur. Seven of these launches are for OneWeb.
https://tass.ru/kosmos/13313029
7 OneWeb launches = 1 Kourou launch on Feb 20 + 6 Baikonur launches after Feb 20.

If the Baikonur launches are still possible approximately 1 per month, completion would be NET July or August.

As we already have, the other 2 Kourou launches are 2 pairs of Galileo satellites, currently late March and September.

This apparently currently precludes further Kourou Soyuz launches in 2022, such as the possibility of 2022 Soyuz launch of Sentinel-1C.

General Director of Glavkosmos Dmitry Loskutov (part of the Roscosmos State Corporation) talks about the company's contracts for 2022.

***

- How many OneWeb satellite launches are expected next year? Will the main part be from Baikonur? Will other spaceports be involved?

- It is planned that in 2022 there will be 7 launches of OneWeb spacecraft, with one launch expected from the Guiana Space Center, and six more from the Baikonur cosmodrome. In accordance with the current contract for 2022, all OneWeb spacecraft launches were planned from the Baikonur cosmodrome, so far we are focusing on this.

- When is the first launch of OneWeb satellites expected in 2022?

- The first launch of OneWeb spacecraft is planned to be carried out from the Guiana Space Center in February 2022.

- How many launches in general under the contracts of Glavkosmos are expected next year?

- It is always difficult to talk about plans, especially the implementation of which largely depends on our foreign partners. At the moment, under current contracts, we are focusing on 11 launches of spacecraft for various purposes, of which one will be at the Vostochny cosmodrome, three are planned for implementation from the GKTs, one of which I have already mentioned is the launch of the OneWeb spacecraft. The majority - seven launches - we plan to carry out from the Baikonur cosmodrome.

As specified in the state corporation, it was originally supposed to launch satellites in January. However, the start was postponed at the request of the customer. The devices are expected to arrive at Baikonur on February 10.
