SUMMARY: An Atlas V rocket successfully launched the Hellas-Sat satellite on Wednesday morning. The rocket lifted off from Cape Canaveral at 2210 GMT (6:10pm EST) and placed the satellite into a transfer orbit 31 minutes later. The launch was delayed once for 24 hours because of avionics problems, and then again because some boats strayed into the launch area. Hellas-Sat will provide voice, data, video and broadcast telecommunications for Greece and Cyprus.
