Ulysses was deployed from the Space Shuttle Discovery on 6 October 1990 at 17:48 UTC. The spacecraft was mounted on top of two propulsion modules, the Inertial Upper Stage (IUS) and the Payload Assisted Module (PAM). After deployment, the two-stage IUS (on the right) was fired first, followed by the PAM, and Ulysses (on the left) was injected into its interplanetary orbit.
