    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:
