ECHOSTAR 16 will raise its orbit to an altitude of 22,300 miles (35,888 km) over the equator in the next few weeks. The craft will also extend its solar panels and activate its communications gear for testing. The satellite, which weighed 14,660 pounds (6,650 kg) at launch, was manufactured by Space Systems/Loral. The spacecraft will be positioned at 61.5 degrees west longitude in the geostationary belt for its 15-year design life. It will be leased by EchoStar Corp. to Dish Network, a leading provider of direct-to-home television programming in the United States. EchoStar 16 also carries a disc with 100 images of humanity and nature—part of a project by artist Trevor Paglen called "The Last Pictures." The images were micro-etched on a silicon disc encased in a gold-plated shell.
