    The US-made communications satellites launched today are designed for Tokyo-based Sky Perfect JSAT and a South Korean environmental observatory, respectively.

    An Ariane 5 rocket carrying two new satellites for Japan and South Korea is being launched from the Guiana Space Center, located near Kourou in French Guiana.

    The lift-off from Guiana marks the 108th flight of an Ariane 5, a European heavy-lift rocket designed for delivering satellites and other payloads into orbit.
