Mexican sat has better looking reps than the British one ;D

And apparently Arianespace is proud to get a larger proportion of women engineers working for them.....

We are not hearing much about Skynet, assume because it's a military satellite there is less info to say about it?

Yeah, check out Jon Amos' video about it. He couldn't even show parts of the sat.

I checked the live broadcast for the last few A5 launches, and all aim for H0 (main engine ignition) at XX:XX:00. This should fill in the gap of launch times for the last few A5 launches....

Ariane V always seems to pause around on the ground a bit once the countdown reaches 0 & then tears off the launchpad at a cracking speed once it gets going.

@ Chris as you mentioned Jon Amos video was good, interesting to note as he points out parts of the satellite are covered up.

Lots of promos.

Nine mins to go until end of powered flight.
