Here is the page in English.


Thank's Robert for the link i don't put the link as he don't have the link to the AFP (L'Agence 
France-Presse) who present the animation but now more information is available and thank's also to  
Domenico I8CVS for the reminder about the electrical problem with the arcjet motor .

This one is a new one i was under the impression as per my readings it was a mechanical valve 
malfunction? if the pump motor was electrically driven it could be an electrical problem as much as 
a mechanical one?

But "one way or another" (the song:)) the result is the same AO-40 does not TX anymore.

P.S. Hope my english is improving...;)

The medium is the message...The content is the audience...;)
