Centaur Engine Shutdown; Coast Phase Begins

The first Centaur engine burn is complete, kicking off a 59-minute coast phase. The MMS spacecraft remain attached to the Centaur.

When the coast phase ends, the Centaur engine will perform one more burn to set up for MMS spacecraft separation. Finally, the four observatories will be released one by one over a period of about 15 minutes.

  1. I don’t know where to go to see the launch of tonight (Centaur). Is there a way to get the link where I can go when there is such a launch.

    I am a French Canadian living in Vero Beach since four year (From november to april – Snow Bird)

    Merci / Thanks for your reply.
