Another launch tonight

Following last week’s STS-132 final scheduled launch of Atlantis and yesterday’s launch of the Venus bound Akatsuki probe, tonight at the ArianeSpace spaceport, flight V194 will send two satellites into space aboard an Ariane 5 rocket. The launch window extends from 23:01 BST to 23:44 BST and the launch itself can be viewed live here. An image of the Ariane 5 rocket slowly making its way from the assembly building to the launch pad, from ESA’s Flickr account, is shown below:
