We have had a successful mission with the Proton M Breeze M rocket, carrying theTelstar 14R/Estrela do Sul 2 satellite built by Space Systems/ Loral. We have had confirmation that the satellite separated from the vehicle on schedule at 00:28 EDT, or 04:28 UTC, 9 hours and 13 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.
