As the Breeze M upper stage of our Proton M rocket continues its climb into space with the Astra 2G satellite onboard, we have received confirmation that the 2nd burn of the upper stage occurred and shut down as scheduled.

The next events are scheduled for about 2 hours from now. The Breeze M upper stage will ignite for a 3rd time and burn for approximately 12 minutes; after that the additional propellant tank will be jettisoned and the Breeze M will complete its 4th burn. All this will happen while the vehicle is again out of range of a ground station. We should reacquire the vehicle around 8:28 p.m. EST, or 01:28 GMT.
