Arianespace Flight 155 has been postponed one day after exceeding the launch
window tonight.

The countdown was stopped when a problem was detected in the computer dialog
between the control center and the launcher.

This difficulty was resolved, and a decision to restart the countdown was
taken. Unfortunately, this attempt exceeded the authorized launch window for
the MSG-1 satellite, and the decision was taken to postpone the launch.

The new launch date is set for Wednesday, August 28 at 7:30 p.m. local
Kourou, French Guiana time.
