STS-96 Nominal OMS-2 Orbital Data

Below is the nominal OMS-2 State Vector and Keplerian Elements for 
STS-96.  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 99996 is a temporary Catalog Number.  A permanent Catalog 
Number and International Designator will be assigned when STS-96 is

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