Want to see the Landsat spacecraft separate from the booster?

“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.”
