Eutelsat’s launch of its 70B craft has been delayed by 24 hours. Eutelsat says the Odyssey floating launch platform was delayed in getting to its mid-Pacific launch site.

The rocket, originally slated for a December 2nd launch, will now lift off (subject to local weather conditions) on Monday December 3rd at 20.44 GMT (12.44 Pacific Standard time).

Sea Launch will transmit live images of the launch.
