SUMMARY: A powerful Ariane 5 rocket lifted off late Friday from the European Space Agency (ESA) launch center in Kourou, French Guiana. It was carrying two satellites: the STELLAT 5 which will provide Internet and video transmission to Europe, Africa and the Middle East; and the N-STAR C which will support mobile phones in Japan. This is the 12th launch of an Ariane 5.

They've obviously been getting value for money out of the Kourou Spaceport.

Launching a lot of satellites at very close intervals! Good on them though.

Anyhow, here's a link to the SpacePort.
