Ariane V flies again!

After the long general strike in French Guiana halted launch operations, a deal has been reached and Arianespace is eagerly resuming flights.  Today, Ariane V returned to service, placing the SGDC spacecraft into orbit for Brazil, and Koreasat 7 for South Korea.  Both vehicles are commsats bound for geosynchronous orbit, the type of mission that has long been Ariane V’s bread and butter.  This is the 78th consecutive successful mission for Ariane V.
