First SBSS Launch

Panel members field questions about the first launch of an SBSS satellite at a prelaunch briefing. The satellite will allow the U.S. to track and catalogue space based objects in low-earth orbit. The Minotaur IV utilizes three government-furnished solid rocket motors from decommissioned Peacekeeper ICBMs and a commercial solid rocket upper stage. (Photo by Dwight McCann)
