    Unhappy Launch of INSAT-4B postponed to Monday

    The launch of the Rs 210 crore Indian communication satellite INSAT-4B using the Ariane 5 rocket from Kourou in French Guyana has been postponed to Monday after an anamoly in the launch pad was detected during the countdown for the lift-off.

    The anamoly relating to 'water deluge system' that is intended to reduce the acoustics level for the safety of the launch pad prompted the commercial launch services provider Arianespace to put the countdown on a temporary hold seven minutes before the launch window was to open, ISRO officials said.

    "Both the spacecraft, INSAT-4B and its co-passenger Skynet 5A of EADS Astrium, are in a safe mode. We are going to work and make a new attempt tomorrow," an Arianespace official said at the mission control centre.

    The launch window was scheduled between 3.55 am and 4.28 am on Sunday.
