People on site for the press tour report that the launch is delayed 24h because of high altitude winds (range safety measure).

Journalist friend reports that the risk was not about Soyuz but that in case of RUD the high winds could have sent the debris on populated areas.

Is it possible to change the audio tracks on the livestream? For instance, to Audio 4 for just the pad ambience and the DDO calls?
Because the Falcon Heavy Test Flight was successful, it has inspired thousands of people to consider changing the future of space travel.

There's the French audio stream, but I don't think we get the others.

Webcast:

Online ZachS09

From the Guiana Space Centre, Arianespace presents live coverage of its last mission this year: a Soyuz-STA rocket carrying CSO 1, which is the first of three of DGA's newest reconnaissance satellite system.

The T0 for today is 16:37:14 UTC, or 1:37:14 PM local time. Overall, it will take one hour for the 3.5-stage Soyuz to deliver CSO 1 into an 800-kilometer high orbit inclined 98.6 degrees, which is a sun-synchronous orbit.
