Paris, France (SPX) Jun 10, 2008
Arianespace has set its next Ariane 5 mission for the evening of June 12 following the completion of additional launch vehicle verifications.

These were ordered by Arianespace after a software programming glitch was discovered during last week's original final countdown.

The upcoming flight will orbit a dual satellite payload of EADS Astrium's Skynet 5C spacecraft for U.K.-based operator Paradigm and the Thales Alenia Space-built Turksat 3A relay platform for Turksat of Turkey.

This 183rd launch of a vehicle from the Ariane family is part of Arianespace's sustained mission rate in 2008, during which seven Ariane 5 flights are planned.
