Gaia launch postponed

Due to recently-discovered technical issues, ESA has decided to perform additional verifications on its Gaia satellite, and therefore we have requested that Arianespace postpone the Gaia launch, currently scheduled for November 20, 2013.
A new launch date will be announced as soon as the availability of the satellite is confirmed.
