Latest update from Kourou timed at  0724UTC

“The chronology is on going smoothly for a launch today at 11:00 for a launch window that has been extended to 3 hours. 
The launcher is under control, flight software is up loaded in the on board computer, the inertial reference system is aligned. 
Mechanical teams are now removing the mobile gantry. Meteo is fine for the launch up to now.”
(I believe the 11:00 time indicated is actually 11:00 CET therefore the start of the launch window remains at 10:00 UTC)
