OUFTI-1 launch postponed for at least 24 hours

A technical failure caused a stop of the countdown.
Hopefully we can expect the launch on April 25, 2016, at 21:02:13 UTC.
(updated: April 25, 16:00 UTC)

On April 24 around 45 minutes before the scheduled liftoff Arianespace reported a problem with the SYZ Inertial Measurement Unit on the launch vehicle.
Arianespace has placed both the rocket and its precious cargo in a safe standby mode.
