GALAXY IIIC

Mission Overview

The Galaxy IIIC mission was successfully completed on June 15, 2002. A Sea Launch Zenit-3SL rocket lifted off precisely on time at 3:39:30 pm PDT from the Odyssey Launch Platform and inserted PanAmSat's Galaxy IIIC satellite into Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit. While the 4850 kg (10,692 lb) satellite was designed for a 15-year lifespan, this exceptionally accurate launch is expected to yield additional years of life on orbit. Built by Boeing Satellite Systems, Galaxy IIIC will provide Internet, video, audio and data services to the United States and Latin America.
