A final, full rehearsal has confirmed that teams at ESA’s mission control are ready for tomorrow’s launch of the Sentinel-1B radar satellite.

An Arianespace rocket carrying Sentinel-1B is set to deliver the next satellite in Europe’s Copernicus Earth environmental monitoring programme into orbit tomorrow.
Follow the launch via live webstream.

Weather is GO and launch will occur at 2102:13 UTC. The time you quoted is BST, not UTC.

SCRUB! A fault has occurred with the Soyuz IMU and countdown has been stopped. Not yet decided if another try will occur tomorrow.

Live coverage is via the ESA livestream?

Does Arianespace no longer offer live launch coverage?

I can't find any reference to live coverage on their website. Too bad, they had the best commentators.

Well spotted, I'd forgot about them. I subscribed to their newsletter, but I can't remember the last time I got one.
