Launch should be happening now if everything went well with the count.

Good 1st stage separation.

Bing translation.

"Has been launched, a meeting of the figure. One or two-stage successful separation, total duration of about eight minutes."

So, it should be in orbit by now or "reached space". :-)

Rui's article. We'll leave it open ended per if it was a success or not pending more info.
