"Launch Alert: we have declared a scrub for today's launch of the #DeltaIVHeavy".

According to ULA, the Delta IV Heavy rocket launch set for Wednesday evening has been scrapped after inspection found a hydrogen leak on one of the engine sections.

India sent up a GSLV rocket with the Indian Air Force's GSAT-7A remote-sensing satellite, while Arianespace launched the French CSO-1 spy satellite from its spaceport in French Guiana with a Russian-built Soyuz rocket.

All systems are a go - as the Delta IV Heavy Rocket prepares for lift-off tonight at 5:49 pm.

Another attempted launch of a satellite-carrying rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base in Santa Barbara County was scrubbed on Thursday, and mission managers said the launch won't happen until at least December 30.
