    Here are approximate elements assuming launch on 2002 Apr 8 at 20:36:16
    UTC into the same initial orbit as STS 108:
    
    1 99999U          02098.88601755  .00025948  12201-4  18433-4 0    19
    2 99999  51.6368  41.1494 0011454 285.1487 252.4856 16.17009401    00
    
    Here are my estimated lift-off times, based on the latest ISS elements:
    
    Shuttle to ISS Pad 39B Launch Time
    
        Launch     Coplanar    Lift-off
         Date        UTC         UTC
    -----------------------------------
     2002 Apr 08   20:41:26    20:36:16
     2002 Apr 09   20:17:45    20:13:46
     2002 Apr 10   19:54:04    19:51:17
     2002 Apr 11   19:30:23    19:25:27
     2002 Apr 12   19:06:42    19:02:58
     2002 Apr 13   18:43:00    18:40:28
     2002 Apr 14   18:19:19    18:14:39
    
    I believe the lift-off times to be intrinsically accurate to +/- 3 s,
    assuming the long-term accuracy of ISS' elements.
