An Ariane-5 rocket, carrying two telecommunication satellites blasts off from the European space centre of Kourou, French Guiana on August 2, 2012. It will eventually place into orbit two geostationary telecommunication satellites -- Intelsat-20 for international satellite operator Intelsat, and HYLAS 2 for European operator Avanti Communications. Intelsat-20, which weighs more than six tonnes, will provide a large number of telecommunication, video, telephone and data transmission services in Europe, the Middle East, Russia and Asia.
