Flight facility engines are at 100 percent. The ss catherine johnson takes flight on this. The 59th anniversary of john glenn’s mercury flight carrying 8 000 pounds of cargo to the international space station good performance on the first stage so far stage. One continues: nominal performance inches at 100 percent. Good good core pressures engines remain steady, added to nominal max q attitude, nominal first stage, passing through the area of maximum dynamic pressure on the rocket 90 seconds into the light. This first stage burns for a little over three minutes. Three minutes 18 seconds until main engine cut off about 90 seconds to stage one burnout attitude nominal engines at 100 and steady t plus two minutes. All subsystems continue in nominal performance. Also, some sub systems are nominal uh we’ll, be ready to shift down to uh 80. On the engines at 170., startup slow throttle down throttling down at three minutes into the flight main engine cutoff coming soon throttle down to 55 percent main engine cutoff. We have miko and terry’s entering into a co stage. Fairing separation will occur about 30 seconds later, as we lose side of the vehicle now. Switching to animation, some control, the firings on the inter stage of the rocket attitude nominal good separation, 20 seconds to stage two ignition all subsystems, nominal fairing separation, enter stage.
