STS-96 Updated Nominbal 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.

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