SHANGHAI - CHINA on Sunday launched its eighth satellite orbiter as part of its navigation and positioning network, state media reported. A Long March-3A carrier rocket carrying the 'Beidou,' or Compass, navigation satellite took off before dawn from the Xichang satellite launch centre in south-west Sichuan province, the China Daily's website reported. The satellite launch will establish a basic navigation and positioning network system, a launch centre official said. China will launch more satellites within two years to complete an Asia-Pacific regional network to provide services for mapping, fishery, transportation, meteorology and telecommunication industries, the official said. The network is expected to provide global services by 2020, the report said. -- AFP
