    Ariane Flight 164 is due to launch on Saturday  with a launch window of 
    1949 to 2110 UTC.
    
    Primary payload is the XTAR- EUR  geosat which is to be "parked" at 29 
    degrees East,  but the rocket will also carry Sloshsat (!) and MAQSAT.
    
    The launch will be broadcast here 
    http://www.videocorner.tv/index.php?langue=en and a launch kit is available 
    at http://www.arianespace.com/site/news/news_sub_launchkit_index.html  (Note 
    in reading this document that the launch has been  postponed  from February 
    11 to 12.)
    
    Further information on Sloshsat can be obtained at 
    http://www.esa.int/esaCP/SEMLEZ0XDYD_index_0.html
    
    As the above contains more specific information than is posted on 
    Spaceflight Now at this stage, I have taken the liberty of copying it to 
    them as the links may be of assistance.
