Inaugural Launch Of Sea Launch Moved Back One Day

Sea Launch officials have moved the first launch of the Sea Launch system back one day. Because this is the inaugural transit to the launch site for both the Sea Launch Commander and Odyssey launch platform, Sea Launch management is proceeding in a methodical and cautious manner.

Originally scheduled for Friday, March 26, 1999, the launch has been rescheduled for Saturday, March 27, 1999, at 2:18 p.m. Pacific Standard Time.

The current destination for both Sea Launch vessels is the Pacific Ocean launch site, 1,400 miles southeast of Hawaii.
