    The following estimates are based on my latest lift-off estimate of 2002
    Apr 04 at 22:12 UTC +/- 2 min:
    
    1 99999U          02094.95262635  .00025948  12201-4  18433-4 0    13
    2 99999  51.6368  61.2517 0011454 285.1487 252.4856 16.17009401    09
    
    These elements are from STS 108, about 40 min after its launch. I
    changed the epoch and rotated the RAAN to the circumstances of the STS
    110 launch.
    
    Launch delays of a few days are not uncommon, due mainly to bad weather.
    Here are the launch times for the week beginning with the scheduled
    launch date:
    
        Launch     Coplanar    Lift-off

    I have written a freeware MS-DOS program to generate the above lift-off
    times. Copies available upon request. Source code is not available.
