Quotes

Shortly after the announcement that the satellites had been injected into orbit, Arianespace Chairman and CEO Stephane Israel said: " Arianespace is very proud of being able to share our expertise with customers in the Americas . Whether for Intelsat , our first commercial customer and the worldwide leader in fixed satellite services, or Arsat, a new regional operator in South America - to whom we with a long, successful life - Arianespace provides tailored launch services with proven quality and reliability. I would like to thank Intelsat for their continued loyalty throughout our 31 year partnership, which honors us, and also thank Arsat and Argentina for placing their trust in us for the launch of their first satellite, which is so important for the company and for the country as a whole. I would also like to thank DIRECTV , for whom the Intelsat 30 payload was custom-built, with whom we have a number of projects now under way. Lastly, thanks to everybody who contributed to this latest success: our prime Airbus and its European partners for the Ariane 5 ECA launcher, with its unrivaled reliability; our partners CNES-CSG and all staff at the launch base for the record availability achieved since the beginning of the year"
The timing of the next launch will be decided in the next few weeks. There are also more options. "The next launch will consist either of two satellites launched by a Soyuz, or four satellites with an Ariane-5" says Detain
"Koreasat-7 will be carried into the orbit by Ariane 5, a heavy-lift rocket typically used for GTO missions. "
EC Commissioner Feroci said, "The European Commission will participate in an inquiry with ESA to understand the causes of the incident and to verify the extent to which the two satellites could be used for the Galileo program. I remain convinced of the strategic importance of Galileo, and I am confident that the deployment of the constellation of satellites will continue as planned."
