Default ET breaks up over Atlantic Ocean?

From:

http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/new...7/1047_am.html

Says (paraphrased) that ET breaks up and ultimately ends in bits in the
Atlantic Ocean.

Is the location accurate?

Early in the program, it was dumped in the Indian Ocean... then later,
just west of Hawai'i? And now the Atlantic Ocean?

Is location, assuming ET SEP at roughly same time every mission, a
function of the orbital inclination?

It's not accurate. It's dumped in the Pacific.

That, and the MECO altitude targets.

Always wondered.....in the case of a VAFB SLC6 launch into polar orbit,
where would the ET end up ?

Hi Jorge,

Actually it depends on the intended inclination of the final orbits
elements. This launch was highly inclined and sent the flight over the
Atlantic for a much longer path than the more usual flights that
launched satellites in the past.

I think the ET was dumped early just before or past the Canary Islands
in this case.

Have you sewn any hackenkreuz armbands for yourself yet? Bought any
brown shirts lately? Stood on any streetcorners?

You're obviously good at distributing misinformation.

Thanks,

Rick

Depends on which mission profile. For the proposed "Baseline Reference
Missions" 3A and 3B (single-orbit spacecraft deploy and retrieval,
respectively), the ET would have impacted in the South Pacific, around 52
degrees south latitude.

HI JUSTIN,

I don't think the Shuttles have the capability of achieving Polar Orbit
from KSC. Those missions would have to be launched from Brandenburg -
and I guess that's not a given at this time.

The sad thing is - the US "intelligence" agencies have spent about 200
billion dollars for these specific satellites to get to space on the
Shuttles. AND now, this pressure from the MIC is why the shuttles are
up and flying despite huge questions about safety or relevance.

I think Rove is facing a life sentence - if not hanging under the
Patriot Act.

I think Cheney is going to serve a 20 year term for obstruction of justice.

GW is irrelevant - without handlers, the guy is a retard.

AND SO IT GOES..

It would be nice if liberal folks organized against fascism before it
takes power.

So many flights to Canada. Sorry, this plight of idiots battling idiots
will become a TRUE HELL

GW will use the advice from Cheney and Rumsfeld and have his Dad
assassinated in and "AL-QUEADA" event to make their triumverate forever
powerfully filling Rove's amazing BJ mouth full of jism..
