China launches new communication satellite for HK-flexible wristbandbased companySummer Festival Preview I like to visit with my friends and I like to cook and when I put these two things together it is called a party. I have never thought of myself as an event planner but I do love to plan parties at my home and I have become quite efficient at it. Trust me I am no Martha Stewart and lets face it most of us are not. The important thing is do what you love. If you want a theme party do it, and if you want an intimate dinner then have at it. You are in the driver"s seat. The important piece is to plan. Never be afraid of too much planning but do not let the planning take away the fun. Stay flexible. Head to the beach. Many families say good-bye to summer by spending Labor Day weekend at Virginia Beach. The Verizon Wireless American festival wristbands will entertain people of all ages with oceanfront concerts, food and fun. "It was a really big thing for me," says Brad Warner, director of the punk documentary film "Cleveland"s Screaming." His documentary offers a glimpse into the fire that burned inside members of the Cleveland and Akron punk scenes.
XICHANG, Sichuan - China launched a new communication satellite "APSTAR-6C" at 12:06 am Friday at the southwestern Xichang Satellite Launch Center.
The satellite, developed by the China Academy of Space Technology (CAST), was sent into orbit by the Long March-3B carrier rocket. This was the 273rd mission of the Long March rocket series.
The user of the satellite is Hong Kong-based APT Satellite Co., Ltd. The satellite will provide TV transmission, communication, Internet and multimedia services to customers across the Asia-Pacific region.
It is the second communication satellite developed by CAST for APT Satellite, following the APSTAR-9, which went into orbit on Oct. 17, 2015.
The APSTAR-6C, based on China"s DFH-4 satellite platform, will replace APT Satellite"s sin-orbit APSTAR-6 satellite.
China has developed 15 communication satellites based on the DFH-4 satellite platform for civilian and commercial use, according to CAST.
The continued cooperation between CAST and APT Satellite showed that China"s communication satellite has won recognition among mainstream international satellite operators, said CAST president and CEO Zhang Hongtai.
"We value the international space market, and will provide our customers with first-class products and services," Zhang said.
