Boeing-built Intelsat 33e, which launched on Aug. 24, 2016, aboard an Ariane 5 rocket on mission VA232 from Guiana Space Centre, is undergoing in-flight maneuvers using rocket engines made by Aerojet Rocketdyne.
Thundering off the launch pad at Kourou in French Guiana, an Ariane 5 booster took to the skies on Wednesday, Aug. 24, to deliver the Intelsat 33e and Intelsat 36 communications satellites into orbit. The mission, designated VA232 in Arianespace’s numbering system, lifted off at 5:55 p.m. EDT (21:55 GMT) from the Ariane Launch Complex No. 3 (ELA 3).
