We have had a successful mission with the ILS Proton Rocket, carrying the Y1B satellite built by Thales Alenia Space and Astrium. We have had confirmation that the Y1B satellite separated from the vehicle on schedule at 3:30 a.m. EDT, or 07:30 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.
