STS-88 Nominal OMS-2 Orbital Data

Below is the nominal OMS-2 State Vector and Keplerian Elements for 
STS-88.  The vector data comes from NASA; the Keplerian Elements 
were computed from the vector.  

This file may be read by VEC2TLE version 9648 to update your 
Keplerian Elements text file.

Note that 99988 is a temporary catalog number.  A permanent catalog 
number and international designator will be assigned when STS-88 is 

The following Keplerian elements were computed by VEC2TLE from this
vector, and the nominal launch time using a 0.5 drag multiplier:
