   Sea Launch's first launch is scheduled for 2:17 p.m. Pacific Standard
   Time on Saturday, March 27, 1999.
   A live satellite broadcast of the launch will be
   downlinked to North America. The broadcast will include interviews,
   Sea Launch background videos, and a live link to the Pacific Ocean
   for the launch itself. Live launch commentary will be provided. The
   broadcast will follow the mission until successful separation of the
   payload in space and will conclude with a continuous loop of a Sea
   Launch news video. A second wrap-up broadcast will be beamed to both
   North America and to Europe/Russia later the same day.
   Broadcast television satellite schedules and downlinks appear below.

   The first North American broadcast is keyed to the time of the launch.
   Transmission will start 45 minutes prior to launch with bars and
   sound, with the formal program beginning 30 minutes prior to the
   launch. The live broadcast will conclude and the looping of the Sea
   Launch news video will begin approximately 60 minutes after the
   launch. These times will slip if a launch slip occurs. 
   The 8 to 9:30 p.m. PST broadcast (the second broadcast to North
   American and the only broadcast to Europe and Russia) will consist of
   30 minutes of wrap-up and a 60 minute loop of the Sea Launch news
   Sea Launch combines the resources of the world's leading aerospace and
   maritime companies. Partners in the international consortium include
   Boeing Commercial Space Company, Kent, Wash., (provides spacecraft
   integration and the payload fairings); Kvaerner Maritime a.s., of
   Oslo, Norway (the vessel builder); RSC Energia of Moscow, Russia
   (provides the Block-DM upper stage and its integration with the launch
   vehicle); and KB Yuzhnoye/PO Yuzhmash of Ukraine (provides the first
   two stages of the launch vehicle).
   Sea Launch has firm contracts for 16 launches and will begin
   commercial operations later this year.
