We have had a successful mission with the Proton M Breeze M rocket, carrying the ASTRA 2E satellite built by Astrium for SES. We have had confirmation that the satellite separated from the vehicle on schedule at 2:50 AM Eastern Time, or 06:50 GMT, 9 hours and 12 minutes after liftoff.

Everything occurred as planned with ignition, shutdown and separation of the Proton’s first three stages. Then the Breeze M upper stage with the satellite continued the mission, igniting five times, and then releasing the satellite into transfer orbit.
