The launch of Arianespace Flight 135 has been postponed for one day
following an anomaly in the ground-based infrastructure at the Spaceport in
French Guiana. This anomaly, which affected the telemetry link with the
PAS-1R satellite, occurred during the final countdown on Nov. 14.

As a result, Flight 135 has been delayed for 24 hours. The launch window
