    Robert Smathers requested estimates of the lift-off time of STS 111.
    
    Here are my latest:
    
    Shuttle to ISS: Pad 39A Launch Time
    
        Launch     Coplanar    Lift-off
         Date        UTC         UTC

     2002 Jun 03   22:13:25    22:10:52

     2002 Jun 07   20:38:40    20:34:16
     2002 Jun 08   20:14:58    20:11:45
    
    Lift-off times are expected to be accurate to +/- 5s, assuming that the
    ISS elements are reliable for the above dates.
    
    1 25544U 98067A   02141.49083569  .00030245  00000-0  37654-3 0  4731

    The public version of the program that generated the above predictions
    should be complete shortly. I will be pleased to e-mail a copy to anyone
    who requests it. Source code is not available, but the key portion of
    the algorithm is explained in the readme file.
