Another thanks for the translations!

The announcer kept saying "chitiri" ("four") a few times.  Maybe a little late to ask, but what was that about?

Well done Roscosmos! Good luck for the rest of the mission!

Lets finally get some samples back from Mars!

Thanks for the commentary- webcast wouldn't work at all for me.
Been watching out for this mission since about 1988!

I should be the one to thank you...

I am taking this project very personally... especially when it has an instrument from my own country! We already lost one instrument on Mars 96 in 1996, my work in this thread helped me not to think about possible failure modes.

Looks like end of webcast, as it's still running, but no more images/audio.

Many thanks to Rui and especially Svetoslav and Yaroslav for the unique coverage via translation (really appreciated! :))

Thank you to everyone!

Indeed, congratulations all around. I even got to practice my Russian listening skills a little. (The lady who was providing pre-launch coverage sounded as if she really was waiting for the real stuff to happen.)

Thank you to all involved in the translations, providing the links for video, and the commentary with what is taking place. It is such a contrast from the days of my youth when we laughed at Soviet failures and were dismissive of their successes. Now I sit on the other side of the world watching live video at my desk while praying to the gods of spaceflight for a good flight and mission. We all recognize that we are part of this and I hope that feeling continues to be shared with many other endeavors on Earth and in space.

you try uploading a short (few min prelaunch+launch) and long version (~1h of prelaunch coverage+launch) at the same time when your upload speed = 0.5mb :D

may be you are speaking about "rass-chetam pribyt" so,
in that case traslation is something like "supporting personnel have to do ..." or so )

While you both were having tea I watched the fine video and captured one moment from it.

You need to enjoy seeing Oxygen Rich to enjoy this sec of the launch.
