    Following the failure of the Proton launch vehicle to place ASTRA 1K, the
    fourteenth satellite in the ASTRA series, into the correct orbit on November
    26th, 2002, the technical teams of SES ASTRA, Alcatel Space, CNES and NORAD
    have succeeded in stabilising the spacecraft in a circular orbit at an
    altitude of 290 km, where it can be safely sustained to allow the
    engineering teams to assess the status of the satellite and appropriate
    actions in due course.
