U.S. telecom satellite put into final orbit - Roscosmos
MOSCOW. June 10 (Interfax) - The mission of a Proton-M rocket coupled with the Intelsat 31 (Intelsat DLA-2) satellite has ended with the satellite being placed into final orbit, Roscosmos said.
"The satellite successfully separated from the booster unit at 1:40 a.m. Moscow time," a Roscosmos representative said on Thursday.
The Proton-M rocket carrying the Intelsat 31 (Intelsat DLA-2) satellite blasted off from the Baikonur cosmodrome at 10:10 a.m. Moscow time on Thursday.
The Intelsat DLA-2 satellite was built by the U.S. company Space Systems Loral on the orders of U.S. satellite communication operator Intelsat S.A. The satellite weighs 6,320 kilograms, and carries ten C transponders and 72 Ku transponders.
The satellite will be put into a geostationary orbit at 95 degrees west, and will provide direct television broadcasting services to Latin America for 15 years.
