The six-minute footage was captured by two video cameras mounted on the rocket and shows the separations of the fairings, first-stage rocket and the satellite.
The fairings of the rocket, separated three minutes and 35 seconds after liftoff, and the first-stage rocket at three minutes and 51 seconds.
