    I just got done watching NASA Select with Atlantis in orbit and preparing for
    OMS-2.  One interesting thing about this launch I hadn't seen before is that
    they apparently are using an OMS burn about 4 or 5 minutes into the launch
    (while the main engines are still firing).  Anyone have any details about the
    why's and wherefors of this extra engine firing?
    
    Jim.
