    The ariane 5 launch today ended in failure. It was going to place two geo 
    sats into orbit. The rocket lost speed and altitude a few minutes after 
    lauch. So that's two more geo sats that failed to reach geo orbit.
    This is bad, that's three in such a short period of time, be interesting to 
    hear what happened.
    I was hoping to try and see one of them after they reached the correct 
    orbital slot.
