Ariane 5 before VA 222 launch April 2015 (Arianespace) The launch of an Ariane 5 carrying two satellites, already delayed because of one problem, was postponed again on Friday by 48 hours. The Friday launch of the Sicral 2 and Thor 7 satellites was postponed early in the day because an "anomaly occurred on the conditioning equipment of the launcher," the company said in a statement early Friday. The launch has been rescheduled for 3:37 pm EDT (1937 GMT) Sunday. The launch was originally scheduled for April 15 but postponed because of a problem with a connector between the rocket's upper stage and ground equipment.
