A Long March-3B carrier rocket carrying Shijian-13, China's first high-throughput communications satellite, blasts off from the launching pad at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in Xichang, southwest China's Sichuan Province, April 12, 2017. Shijian-13 has a higher message capacity than all of China's previous communications satellites combined and will provide better Internet access in less-developed regions, as well as on planes and high-speed trains.
