    We all remember what happened to poor AMC-14, as the upper breeze m stage of a Proton rocket failed, miserably, far out of geo transfer orbit.

    August 18th, 2008 6:16et marks Protons return to flight.

    You may want to keep an eye on this, because later this year, proton will be lifting nimiq4(Sept) and ciel2(Nov) into the sky.

    guess i'm the only one that cared :)

    "We have had a successful mission with the Proton M Breeze M
    rocket, carrying the Inmarsat-4 F3 satellite built by EADS
    Astrium for Inmarsat. We have had confirmation that the
    satellite separated from the vehicle on schedule at 3:46 am
    Eastern time, or 7:46 GMT, 9 hours and 3 minutes after
    liftoff. "

    The breeze M worked fine, go nimiq4 and then ciel2!

    Nice to hear of a successful launch ...

    Don't worry ... everyone will be interested when a DBS satellite is loaded up. :D
