Atlas AC074


Launch id 93015
Launch date 25 Mar 1993 at 22:48 UT
Launch site Cape Canaveral LC36
Payload mass ~3000 kg
Payload A: UHF 1

The Atlas lost some power during the booster burn, and the Centaur had to burn longer to make up and get into parking orbit. As a result, the second Centaur burn to transfer orbit ran out of fuel during the burn. The payload satellite was left in a 219 x 9158 km x 27.3 deg orbit.

This was the third failure of the Atlas 1 class rocket in the last 4 launches!
