The launch wasnt due tonight anyway! It has been postponed from October 2nd.

Heres the official Arianespace info:

At the request of one of the customers who wishes to carry out some additional checks on his satellite, Arianespace has decided to postpone by a few days the launch, initially scheduled on Tuesday, October 2nd.

A new launch date will be announced shortly.
