Apogee Mission 1 A Success!

(Flint, MI) On Monday, a mighty Titan IV-B lifted off the launch pad at 5:08pm EST from Space Launch Complex 41 in Cape Canaveral Florida.  Apogee Mission 1 was deemed a success despite missing its intended 250km orbit.  Instead, the spacecraft entered a stable low earth elliptical orbit, which satisfied the mission objectives and parameters.  Video of the mission control center during the mission can be found on the Apogee Mission 1 information page.
