ashburnskinsfan Posted November 17, 2006 Share Posted November 17, 2006 Wallops Island on the Delmarva peninsula will launch a Minotaur rocket on the morning of December 11. The Minotaur is made up of Minuteman II first and second stages with two Pegasus upper stages and payload fairing on top of it. It won't quite be on the scale of a Shuttle launch but a pretty spectacular sight if you happen to be in the area early that morning. This will be the first East Coast launch of a Minotaur. The others have been from Vandenberg AFB. And for those who are interested ... here's what a User Manual for a rocket looks like : http://www.orbital.com/NewsInfo/Publications/Minotaur_Guide_HiRes.pdf Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
