The Breeze M has successfully completed its 3rd and 4th burns. The additional propellant fuel tank was successfully jettisoned as well. The vehicle is in a five-hour coasting period. A 5th and final burn will occur at the end of that period, with separation of the Astra 1M spacecraft expected about 12 minutes after the 5th burn. We’ll be back to report on that event as soon as we have confirmation.
