    "A commercial imaging satellite and a NASA ozone monitoring spacecraft may
    be in orbit but possibly not the intended orbit. The status is a little
    unclear.   Liftoff of the four-stage rocket came right at 2:49 p.m. EDT.
    Tracking cameras showed the Taurus rocket flying essentially sideways a
    split second after the first and second stages separated (Orbital Sciences
    calls them Stage 0 and Stage 1). The second stage appeared to recover the
    flight and reports from launch control reported the mission was proceeding
    normally. "
