Launch delayed one day due to launch abort; already updated:
Announcement

08/20/2021 01:27

The launch of the Soyuz-2.1b carrier rocket with the Fregat upper stage and 34 spacecraft of the OneWeb satellite company was postponed to a backup date for technical reasons.

Currently, the space rocket remains in a pre-launch state. The start time will be announced additionally.

UPDATED: According to preliminary data, the launch of the Soyuz-2.1b launch vehicle with 34 OneWeb spacecraft as part of mission 35 is scheduled for August 21, 2021 at 01:18:20 Moscow time.
01:18:20 21 August MST - 3 hours = 22:18:20 20 August UTC

Another one day delay:
The launch of the Soyuz-2.1b rocket was postponed at the request of the customer

08/20/2021 22:00

The launch of the Soyuz-2.1b carrier rocket with 34 OneWeb spacecraft as part of mission 35 has been postponed to the second backup date - August 22, 2021 at 01:13 Moscow time.

The launch was postponed at the request of the customer for additional work on the ground control and monitoring system for spacecraft.

The launch vehicle, booster and spacecraft are in a stable and safe state. The launch complex is restored to its original state.

The members of the commission made a decision on readiness for refueling and launching of the carrier rocket on the second reserve date - August 22 at 01:13:40 Moscow time. At present, a joint crew of the Roscosmos State Corporation specialists is starting operations to refuel the rocket with propellant components. After that, the final operations will begin at the launch complex of the Vostok site No. 31, the undocking of the mobile filling units from the filling stations and electric dispensers and the evacuation of personnel from the zero mark.

MERLIN (Methane Remote Sensing LIDAR Mission) delayed to 2027:

https://www.dlr.de/rd/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-2440/3586_read-31672/

Google translate:

Quote
The German-French small satellite MERLIN (Methane Remote Sensing LIDAR Mission) is a climate mission to observe the greenhouse gas methane in the atmosphere. With the help of a LIDAR (Light Detecting and Ranging) instrument, MERLIN will detect and monitor the greenhouse gas in the earth's atmosphere from a height of around 500 kilometers from 2027.

<snip>

Between 2010 and 2015, the CNES and the German Space Agency at DLR jointly prepared a scientific concept and technical feasibility study and the preliminary technical design for the satellite system. The final design and construction phase has begun. The satellite is scheduled to launch into space in 2027.

JUICE (Jupiter Icy Moon Explorer): Plans for the cruise phase
...
1. Trajectory during the cruise phase

The mission will be launched from Kourou with an Ariane 5. The baseline launch window is between 26 August – 15 September 2022, with a backup launch slot in August 2023. The interplanetary transfer sequence relies on gravity assist manoeuvres with Venus, Earth and the Moon. The Jupiter orbit insertion will be performed in July 2031. The cruise phase officially starts after the end of the near-Earth commissioning (launch + 3 months) and ends six months before the Jupiter orbit insertion, when the nominal science mission begins.

Cross-post; my bold:
Meteosat Third Generation takes major step towards its first launch
02/09/2021

After many technical and programmatic challenges, the first satellite of the next generation of the Meteosat family has taken a major step towards its first flight, currently scheduled for launch in autumn 2022.
<snip>
The MTG-I1 satellite will be the first of six satellites being developed in the frame of the MTG contract, from which four ‘Imager’ satellites (MTG-I) and two ‘Sounder’ satellites (MTG-S) are being procured.

The first MTG-S satellite is also progressing well and is on track for launch readiness towards the end of 2023.<snip>

Does anyone have a source for info on CSG-2 that could check on the launch plans for it?  Looking for current info, not links to stuff from years ago.

CSG-2 is listed by most manifests as launching on Vega-C.  A recent filing for ground station support shows it as launching on a Falcon 9 from Florida NET November.  A document on the Italian Space Agency's site that has a 2021 date shows it as launching before the end of 2021.

Five Electron launches, 25 satellites, 1 entire constellation: we’ve signed a deal with @KineisIoT to deliver their internet-of-things constellation to space on Electron.

https://twitter.com/rocketlab/status/1435697186902183936

Quote
The proven reliability of Electron’s Kick Stage in successfully deploying 100+ satellites to date was a decisive factor in Kinéis launching with Rocket Lab. The Kick Stage enables precise deployment and means Kinéis doesn’t have to sacrifice spacecraft mass for propulsion.

Quote
”We’re thrilled to be Kinéis' launch partner across five dedicated missions. Deploying an entire constellation and having it operational quickly requires each satellite to be deployed to exactly the right orbit. Rocket Lab’s track record of exceptional orbital deployment accuracy provides Kinéis with that assurance."
