STS-90 Nominal Mission Orbit Profile



The STS-90 Mission Orbit Profile including a full set of nominal state
vectors is available on the AMSAT Web site at:

        http://www.amsat.org/amsat/sarex/vectors.html

The nominal state vectors are time-independent.  If the launch date or time
changes, you can use them to compute updated Keps by supplying VEC2TLE with
the new launch time information.

Note that the "99990" catalog number used for the vectors is temporary.  A
permanent catalog number and
international designator will be assigned after STS-90 is launched.
