The launch of OneWeb communications satellites from the Kourou space center in French Guiana, planned for February 20, has been delayed due to problems with the equipment of the Russian carrier, Greg Wyler, the chairman of OneWeb, said Thursday.
“It’s true, there is an anomoly on the rocket which will cause us to push out the launch. Our satellites are fine and ready to go!” Wyler tweeted.
