French Guiana: After the launch of Sentinel-1B satellite was delayed for 24 hours on Saturday, the European Space Agency (ESA) halted it again on Sunday due to anomaly. According to ESA, the anomaly was observed during the countdown for the launch of Soyuz flight VS14 carrying Sentinel-1B, after which the launch was halted. The launch vehicle and satellites were switched into a completely safe standby mode. The new launch date will be communicated after the anomaly has been analysed.
