Russian rocket orbited a Mexican satellite.
13:59
On September 29, 2011 at 18:31 UTC the Russian "Proton-M” rocket-carrier was launched from Baykonur Cosmodrome. The rocket equipped with the "Briz-M” booster orbited the "QuetzSat-1” Mexican telecommunications satellite.
The "QuetzSat-1” begins a 15-year life of direct-to-home television broadcasting for Mexico, the U.S. and Central America. Built in California by Space Systems/Loral for Luxembourg-based satellite operator SES, the craft's 32 Ku-band transponders will beam entertainment programming to small roof-top dishes from its vantage point in geostationary orbital over the equator at 77 degrees West longitude.
SES will lease the QuetzSat 1's communications relay capacity to EchoStar Corp. for the Dish Mexico and the DISH Network subscription television services.
