    Ariane Flight 164 is due to launch on Saturday  with a launch window of 
    1949 to 2110 UTC.
    Primary payload is the XTAR- EUR  geosat which is to be "parked" at 29 
    degrees East,  but the rocket will also carry Sloshsat (!) and MAQSAT.
    The launch will be broadcast here and a launch kit is available 
    at  (Note 
    in reading this document that the launch has been  postponed  from February 
    11 to 12.)
    Further information on Sloshsat can be obtained at
    As the above contains more specific information than is posted on 
    Spaceflight Now at this stage, I have taken the liberty of copying it to 
    them as the links may be of assistance.
