It will carry out a series of projects including acquiring

BEIJING Justin Simmons Jersey , March 31 (Xinhua) -- Former Czech midfielder Pavel Nedved has signed a three-year deal to be ambassador for the Chinese top soccer league.

The 43-year-old replaced former England captain David Beckham for the role which he was handed to by Chinese Super League (CSL) company chairman Ma Chengquan in Prague on Wednesday.

"Before me it was David Beckham so it's a great honor for me and for the entire Czech Republic," the winner of the 2003 Ballon d'Or told reporters on the fringes of Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to Prague.

The CSL company said Nedved, dubbed "Czech Ironman" in China, has been a widely recognized figure in the most populous country.

"Nedved is known for his outstanding soccer skills and more importantly his never-say-die spirit. His fighting spirit fits well in what the Chinese Super League calls for Jake Butt Jersey ," the CSL company said in a statement.

China launched its first lunar probe on Wednesday Carlos Henderson Jersey , the first step into its ambitious three-stage moon mission, marking a new milestone in the country's space exploration history.

The circumlunar satellite Chang'e-1 blasted off on a Long March3A carrier rocket at 6:05 p.m. (10:05 GMT) from the No. 3 launch tower in the Xichang Satellite Launch Center of southwestern Sichuan Province.

Hundreds of domestic reporters and space experts from Japan, Germany, Italy and other countries invited by the Chinese space authorities gathered at the launch center to see the historic moment.

A total of 57 video cameras fixed to the launching tower recorded the ignition from different angles and scenes broadcast live on TV showed stupendous roars and shakes.

At the moment of blast Demarcus Walker Jersey , 400 tons of water pumped into the tower gutters beforehand was immediately heated into vapor.

"The launch was very successful, and everything is proceeding just as planned," said Wu Ji, director of the Space Science and Applied Research Center under the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).

Chang'e-1 separated from carrier rocket at 6:29 p.m. and entered into a 16-hour orbit at 205 kilometers perigee and 50 Garett Bolles Jersey ,930 kilometers apogee, according to the Beijing Aerospace Control Center (BACC).

It flied over the Chilean sky at around 6:50 p.m. and began to use solar energy for power supply after its solar panel was unfolded under the observation of the Chilean's Center for Space Studies (CEE).

It is the first time for China to improve space mission monitoring coverage through international networks. Another three observation stations of the European Space Agency also provide support for this project.

The launch of the lunar probe "marks another milestone in China's aerospace program following the launch of man-made satellite and manned space missions", said Chinese vice-premier Zeng Peiyan at the Xichang launch center.

Zeng conveyed Chinese President Hu Jintao's congratulations on the launch success and his regards to the scientists, technicians and army officers who have been working on the research Courtland Sutton Jersey , development and experiment of the lunar probe project.

Chang'e-1, named after a legendary Chinese goddess of moon, is expected to experience four accelerations and enter earth-moon transfer orbit on October 31 and arrive in the moon's orbit on November 5.

Flying to the moon is the nation's long cherished dream, as Chang'e has been worshipped as the "moon lady" for thousands of years. Legend has it that she floated toward the sky and finally landed on the moon after taking a bottle of elixir Bradley Chubb Jersey , where she became a goddess accompanied by a jade rabbit.

Chang'e-1 is so far the most sophisticated satellite China has ever built. Scientists will maneuver it at least 10 times before it arrives in the moon's orbit. China's Shenzhou VI manned spacecraft in 2005 was maneuvered three times by scientists in the flight control center.

Because of the repeated maneuvers, the fuel that the 2,300-kg Chang'e-1 carries accounts for nearly half of the satellite's total weight, scientists said.


The satellite will relay the first picture of the moon in late November and will then continue scientific explorations of the moon for a year.

It will carry out a series of projects including acquiring 3-D images and analyzing the distribution of elements on the moon's surface.

Luan Enjie Denver Broncos Hats , chief commander of China's lunar orbiter project, said that the moon mission in modern time will boost the development of human kind's deep space explo. Cheap Jerseys   Cheap Jerseys Wholesale   Cheap MLB Jerseys China   Cheap Jerseys From China   Cheap Jerseys Online   Cheap College Basketball Jerseys   Cheap NBA Jerseys Free Shipping   Cheap Baseball Jerseys   Wholesale NFL Jerseys   Wholesale NFL Jerseys
