Engine start should be confirmed by now, but they are not showing it!

OK, applause. We must have engine start.

No one'll bother to translate "orbit insertion", or "Apogee motor"

Apparently they did translate "Apogee" lol. "Taral"

They were explaining how the AOCS system has isolation valves, and therefore is more immune to the nasty effects of the hypergolic propellant, whereas the LAM didn't have them (will have to check that diagram later) - before they cut to cover the confirmation of the ignition.

Still awaiting confirmation of occultation?

Talking about orbits. Engine burn should end in 3 minutes (real time). About 19 minutes before the occult ends.

Burn end? The firing must have been completed by now & MOM must be turning towards Earth to resume communication.
