SOYUZ SOJOURN: Arianespace says the first two Soyuz launchers to operate from a new Soyuz launch pad at its Kourou, French Guiana, spaceport have left Russia aboard the MN Colibri, one of the vessels the launch provider uses to transport launch vehicles from European manufacturing sites to Kourou. The vehicles are due to arrive in the final week of November. Soyuz operations from French Guiana are due to start in April 2010.
