Chapman launched
HASA made its firsts steps outside the Earth-moon system with the launch of Chapman. The launch went very smooth and the probe placed in orbit a couple of minutes later. The TMI (Trans Martian Injection) went not so smooth. When the engine fired to place the probe on a path to Mars, it fired for a couple of seconds and then shutdown again.
