    SUMMARY: A Russian Proton rocket lifted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome on Wednesday, carrying a Brazilian Amazonas satellite into orbit. The rocket launched at 2232 UTC (6:32 pm EDT), and its Breeze M upper stage placed the satellite into a geosynchronous orbit 9 hours, 11 minutes later. When it reaches its final position of 61-degrees West, it will provide broadcast television services to countries on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.

    That's good news - especially for the Spanish speaking communities as this will enable them to have better global communications in their own language & just goes to show the up & coming "push" of the Spanish language (catching up fast on the English language&#33. Spanish is spoken by more people in the USA than in Spain! Their Spanish is a variation of the Spanish spoken in Spain itself but easily understood - like the differences in American English & British English!
