Here is where I am at a loss.  I have ZERO data on the orbit and ZERO
info on the burn times.  That adds up to almost no chance to tell
people when and where to look.   Perhaps Mr Chien can correct the
lack of info.

The IUS was under investigation due to failure placing a DSP into orbit.
I have not seen anything that clears the IUS for flight.  If it is not
cleared, I suspect the Chandra flight will be delayed.
