The planned launch of four important new satellites for the O3b division of SES Networks has been delayed by a few days.

The launch has been rescheduled for this coming Friday March 9th. Arianespace says the launch, on a Soyuz rocket, is now timed for 16.37 UTC (and 13.37 local time in French Guiana).

Arianespace has not supplied much in the way of information, other than to say that additional checks and final verifications are taking place at the launch site following the January problem with an Ariane 5 launch mishap on January 25th.
