Orbital Sciences announced that the Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 satellite, built by the company for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA, was successfully launched into orbit aboard a Delta II rocket earlier today. The satellite was "successfully" deployed into its targeted 430-mile altitude orbit approximately 56 minutes after launch. JPL and Orbital engineers have begun a comprehensive series of in-orbit tests to verify all spacecraft systems are functioning properly. Orbital will manage day-to-day in-orbit operations of the satellite from the company’s Mission Operations Center at its Dulles, Virginia campus for the duration of the program. JPL expects OCO-2 science operations to begin later in 2014.
