      2001 Mars Odyssey Launch

      The 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft will be launched on a Delta II
      rocket from Launch Pad 17A at Cape Canaveral Air Station, Florida.
      The 21-day launch window opens on April 7, 2001, and the first launch
      opportunity will be at 11:02 AM EDT. The Delta rocket will fly
      up the east coast of North America, then over Europe, and
      spacecraft separation from the rocket will occur over the Middle East.
      The spacecraft will leave Earth at a relative
      velocity of 11.5 kilometers/second, or 25,724 mph.

      Detailed information on the launch is now available
      on the 2001 Mars Odyssey home page:

      http://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/odyssey/mission/launch.html

      Included on the page are:

      o How to watch launch in person (if you're near Cape
      Canaveralin Florida), over a satellite dish, or
      over the Internet.

      o A listing of the times of all launch opportunities
      from April 7 to April 27.

      o Detailed launch sequence events including times, diagrams
      and descriptions.

      o Information on the Delta 2 rocket.

      o A simulation of the launch that allows you to preview the
      launch events prior to the real launch.
