Soyuz launch of Amos 2 satellite (Arianespace) The launch of an American communications satellite on a Soyuz booster was scrubbed at the last moment Friday night because of a glitch with the rocket's telemetry system. The Soyuz-Fregat was scheduled to launch the Galaxy 14 communications satellite shortly before 7:30 pm EDT (2330 GMT) Friday night from the Baikonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, but the launch was scrubbed 30 seconds before launch when a telemetry problem with the Soyuz's second stage developed. The launch has been rescheduled for 7:28 pm EDT (2338 GMT) Saturday. Galaxy 14 is an Orbital Sciences-built communications satellite for PanAmSat, carrying a payload of C-band transponders. The satellite was originally planned for launch on an Ariane 5, but was moved to Soyuz to better meet PanAmSat's schedule.
