It's going to be a nervous November....

Once we've got over the one in twenty probability of failure during launch and boost, it ain't over.

The thrusters on the MTM aren't due to be switched on until a month after launch, so there's going to be a very large bunch of people turning very blue holding their breath over the next few weeks.
