We have had a successful mission with the Proton M Breeze M rocket, carrying the SkyTerra 1 satellite built by Boeing Space & Intelligence Systems. We have had confirmation that the satellite separated from the vehicle on schedule at 9:43 p.m. EST, or 02:43 UTC, 9 hours and 14 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.
