@StephenCWLL @ESA_EDM by 17:15 latest, mission controllers are cautious by nature — ESA (@esa) October 16, 2016

It will take the signal 9 minutes and 36 seconds to travel from @ESA_TGO to Earth, to confirm the separation of @ESA_EDM #ExoMars — ESA Operations (@esaoperations) October 16, 2016

@StephenCWLL correct, about 10 mins until we have confirmation of separation of #exomars @ESA_EDM — ESA (@esa) October 16, 2016

@planet4589 @idariane perhaps better on the direct livestream link? https://t.co/VSjdpslj9a — ESA (@esa) October 16, 2016

Separation should have occurred on-board! @ESA_EDM @ESA_TGO #ExoMars we'll see confirmation in about 10 minute's time — ESA Operations (@esaoperations) October 16, 2016
