A European heavy-lift rocket launched two communications satellites to orbit from South America on Wednesday night (June 22).

An Arianespace Ariane 5 rocket lifted off from Europe’s Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana on Wednesday at 5:50 p.m. EDT (2150 GMT). That was 47 minutes into the 100-minute launch window, time that France-based Arianespace took to carry out some further checks on the rocket.
