Short Take: Loral Skynet satellite could launch early

Loral Skynet's new broadcast video and communications satellite Telstar 6 may launch earlier than expected, the company said. Component modifications to the bird were completed recently, clearing the way for an earlier-than-expected launch. The satellite, which could lift off as early as January 30 from Kazakhstan, will serve broadcasting customers and TV news organizations. Telstar 6 was slated to launch sometime during the second quarter.
