LAUNCH PAD

- JCSAT-9 Launches From Boeing's Platform At Sea

http://www.spacedaily.com/reports/JCSAT_9_...orm_At_Sea.html

Long Beach CA (SPX) Apr 13, 2006 - Lockheed Martin's JCSAT-9 telecom satellite,
designed and built for JSAT Corp. of Japan, was successfully launched at sea
Wednesday afternoon aboard Boeing's Zenit-3SL rocket, which lifted off from the
company's Odyssey semi-submersible platform, located at an equatorial site at
154 degrees West longitude.

"After having some business dealings with men, I am occasionally chagrined,
and feel as if I had done some wrong, and it is hard to forget the ugly circumstance.
I see that such intercourse long continued would make one thoroughly prosaic, hard,
and coarse. But the longest intercourse with Nature, though in her rudest moods, does
not thus harden and make coarse. A hard, sensible man whom we liken to a rock is
indeed much harder than a rock. From hard, coarse, insensible men with whom I have
no sympathy, I go to commune with the rocks, whose hearts are comparatively soft."

- Henry David Thoreau, November 15, 1853
