Some over-performance on one of the plots. But they still said nominal.
Ground station LOS .
Waiting for AOS from SCI-Nalanda.

Yes, even I was checking those graphs. Is that fine?? I am really tense here!!

No direct telemetry due to tracking assets. However, there's clearly some lofting via over performance.

The higher altitude indicates that the insertion velocity is a little higher than expected. This means the next PS4 insertion burn will need a little less delta-V.

Wow, that is some over-performance. Not to worry thogh. This can always be compensated by burning the next stage for a shorter time. It's under-performance (beyond correction margin of next stage) that's a problem.


SCI-Nalanda AOS! :D <Phew> EDIT: this happened at the time of edit, and not post. Mea culpa.
PS-4 ignition at T+2099.4s

Can't help recalling the call via STS-1's launch! :) "You're lofting a little bit..."
