I stopped reading Langewiesche's articles, not because he's a bad writer - he's not - but all his articles seem to be about large numbers of people dying in horrible ways I guess he's got a good line of work going there, but personally that's not a subject I would want to specialize in.William Langewiesche on what likely happened to the mysteriously lost Malaysian 370. I like the magazine title better than the online one, so I'm going to use that: Good Night. Malaysian Three-Seven-Zero.
Langewiesche also wrote the excellent The Devil At 37,000 Feet, about a midair collision in Brazil - I think I posted that one in the previous interesting articles thread.
The JCSAT-18 satellite was built for SKY Perfect JSAT, one of the largest providers of multichannel pay TV broadcast services in Japan, which operates the largest satellite communications business in Asia. The JCSAT-18 satellite will provide Ku-band coverage and improve mobile and broadband services for SKY Perfect JSAT Corporation customers in the Asia-Pacific region, including the far eastern part of Russia. The satellite features technologies in the power subsystem to achieve highest efficiencies, and it also features command and data handling technologies to provide a more secure spacecraft. Boeing has built 13 satellites, including two high-throughput satellites, for SKY Perfect JSAT Corporation and its predecessors since the 1980s.
