The #Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) solar arrays deployed successfully and the spacecraft is sending telemetry back to Earth.
The #Landsat Data Continuity Mission spacecraft is on its own after a successful separation from the Centaur upper stage.
The Centaur's single engine shut down as planned. The spacecraft will separate from the empty Centaur booster in a few minutes.
The #Landsat spacecraft is moving at 14,200 mph. Two minutes before the Centaur engine shuts down to begin a 55-minute coast phase.
The #Landsat spacecraft separation will be one hour, 19 minutes from when the vehicle launched.
#Landsat fun fact: Once in orbit, the spacecraft will take about 90 minutes to complete one orbit, revisiting the same spot every 16 days.
