    On Aug 10, an atlas 5 rocket will be used to send the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, on it's way to
    mars.

    58 mimutes after launch, the rocket will release the spacecraft, and dump it's fuel. 
    
    Ephemeris data for the spacecraft, starting around the time of release from upper stage is at
