Less than one hour for launch and the service tower is being retracted for the launch position.

Liftoff will occur just a few minutes before sunset, so views should be spectacular!

I like the idea of this system this satellite will be part of. Apparently it will be decent broadband, anywhere (which you can't even get via landline in the UK unless they've put fiber into the ground - which they haven't done much of in York.....I digress).
