    Orbit?
    From: Derrick Young

    Dan,
    
    Place things in orbit?  I used to work in the space program for NASA.  I
    worked on the SCOUT launch vehicle program and that was our job - put things
    in orbit.
    
    The nominal orbit for the SCOUT with a 300 pound satellite was 110 NM.  The
    stated accuracy of the launch vehicle was +/- 150 NM - which occasionally
    gave us some problems.
    
    In practical terms, we were the most successful launch vehicle in NASA's
    inventory (98% success) back in the late 70's and early 80's - but there
    were a few instances where we put the satellite in the drink.
