Into 3rd stage burn now... Waiting telemetry to confirm orbital insertion.

What are the post-orbit-insertion milestones. Will the spacecraft be active or dormant during its tran-solar system transfer orbit ? What type of power supply is going to be used during the transitional phases (Solar, RTG ? etc.)

TDRS acquisition was not as per nominal procedure, problems do you think anybody ?

Up, up and Away!

IIRC, IBEX will not leave earth orbit, but will have a very elliptical orbit and perform remote sensing on the interstellar boundary. I don't think any current version of Pegasus has the capability to put a package into an escape trajectory.



Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

Correct, this is a remote sensing bird.
