TCM1 was completed 5/22 (yeah!). biggrin.gif Press release at: https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.php?feature=7138

Can't provide much more data than in the news release but the S/C performance was great and we hit the desired DV well within 1 sigma. Very healthy spacecraft and now we are on a path to Mars! Lots to do in the coming months, but so far a really smooth cruise!

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

The cubesats have done their TCMs as well ( https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.php?release=2018-123 )

Looks like B has a leaky valve, but it should be able to make it as well (showing how useful twin spacecraft are!)
