    An interesting problem though:
    According to 
    http://www.globalsecurity.org/space/world/china/xichang.htm , range 
    safety concerns constrain the launch azimuth to between 94 and 104 
    degrees or approximately EAST. How did they shoot something to the 
    WEST?

    Given that they have happily blown a satellite to pieces, shedding debris
    along a well used orbital track suggest that Range Safety was the least of
    their concerns :-(
