STS-100 Nominal Ornbital Data



Below is the nominal State Vector and Keplerian Elements for 
STS-100.  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 90100 is a temporary Catalog Number.  A permanent Catalog
Number and International Designator will be assigned when STS-100
is launched.

The following Keplerian elements were computed by VEC2TLE from the
vector, using a 0.5 drag multiplier:
