Default Hughesnet Juipter 1(echostar 17) launch date set

Jupiter 1(echostar 17) launch date is: change to: July 5 2012. Expect service about 2 to 5 months after launch.


editing: launch moved to late June due to some issue(solar panel deployment issue on another satellite on may 31, that caused an insurance claim due to a failure of one panel assembly to properly deploy, due to a loose wire that then broke during deployment).
The launch of the EchoStar 17 Ka-band broadband satellite, formerly called Jupiter, has been delayed for an undetermined amount of time to give manufacturer Space Systems/Loral time to make last-minute checks on the spacecraft, industry officials said.
