    Comments: Built by Orbital Sciences Corp. of Virginia, SES 3 is beginning a 15-year mission to deliver educational, international and high-definition programming across the United States and the Caribbean for SES World Skies. It's the second of three similar spacecraft launched for SES World Skies, following a Proton flight with SES 1 last year and the planned launch of SES 2 on an Ariane 5 rocket in August or September. SES 3 will replace the aging AMC 1 spacecraft launched on an Atlas 2A rocket in 1996. After a series of thruster firings to guide itself to its final orbital post, SES 3 will begin service from 103 degrees west longitude. The craft's communications payload includes 24 C-band and 24 Ku-band transponders for traditional television broadcast programming and mobile data transmission, broadband Internet and private networks, according to SES World Skies.
