He adds that he hopes Chinese animators will continue to take inspiration from th

“I want to study satellites. I want to learn and work on communications satellites operating in low Earth orbit, because no

“I want to learn how to combine these technologies and do some research here in Beijing, s
o when I come back to my country I can help to develop our own satellite technology,” he added.
Each of Venezuela’s three satellites－one communication and two r

partners, such as Alibaba Health and Tencent.
