    The two-window scenario probably represents two opportunities to hit the 
    same orbit plane using respectively north-easterly and south-easterly 
    launch azimuths as the Earth's rotation takes the plane through CCAFS. 
    The window in both cases is 10 mins - ie the corridor is 2.5 degrees 
    wide in RA.
