2011 Nov 26

Ecliptic's RocketCam system captured the launch and departure of NASA's Mars Science Laboratory mission (MSL, "Curiosity") today, onboard an Atlas 5 rocket supplied by United Launch Alliance.

The onboard RocketCam system provided aft- and forward-looking views of the Atlas 5's launch, ascent, Earth orbit insertion, Centaur upper stage separation from the Atlas 5 first stage, and spacecraft separation from the Centaur.  MSL was successfully sent off on a path to Mars.
