T+9 minutes. Upper stage shutdown and spacecraft separation. The upper stage now opening a valve in order to tumble away from the Soyuz MS-03 capsule.

What a jolt that was for the astronauts! Even bigger than the previous one during core stage separation and upper stage ignition!

T+10 minutes. The Korolev Control Center located outside of Moscow is now controlling the Soyuz MS-03 mission. Control was handed off from the Mission Control Center in Houston after the upper stage shut down.

Why did NASA PAO say the third stage had a single engine?

Now showing a view from the docking camera for the first time.

You'll be seeing the Station from this camera a lot during rendezvous and docking on Saturday.

Dan Huot now signing off the NASA TV coverage.

This has been ZachS09 helping out with the play-by-play commentary for a successful launch at 20:20:13 UTC.

From Mission Control Houston, good-bye for now.

Why did NASA PAO say the third stage had a single engine?

It's been that way for all Soyuz third stages. They have what appears to be four engines, but it IS a single engine with four nozzles connected to four thrust chambers.
