   WHERE: Arianespace's launch facility in Kourou, French Guiana.

   WHY: PAS-1R will be PanAmSat's largest, most powerful satellite ever;
   will replace PAS-1, the world's first commercial international
   communications satellite, which was placed into orbit 12 years ago to
   break a global satellite monopoly and launch today's
   multibillion-dollar international satellite services industry; will
   supply more than twice the capacity of PAS-1 and is substantially more
   powerful; will be PanAmSat's 22nd spacecraft worldwide.
