       YEAR TO DATE LAUNCH VEHICLE SUMMARY

Calendar year launch vehicle results, ranked by number 
of successes, with launch total as the first tiebreaker 
and vehicle payload mass as the second tiebreaker.  
Low Earth Orbit (LEO) missions have orbital periods 
less than 2 hours. Deep Space missions include 
heliocentric, planetocentric, and solar system escape 
trajectories.

(1) Payload fairing failed to separate.
(2) 2nd stage reportedly fell short of drop zone.  No satellite tracked.
(3) 321 x 36,461km x 62.8 deg, short of planned 1,000 x 39,800 km x 63 deg 12-hr orbit
    Reported early Fregat shutdown 3-5 sec too soon during 3rd and final burn.
    Cause traced to bad data about payload input into flight computer. 
(4) First S. Korean orbital attempt.  1 of 2 PL fairing halves failed to sep.  
    Planned 306 x 1,500 km near-polar orbit.
(5) Failure during second Stg 3 burn left sat in 221x21135x22.3deg orbit, about 
    350-400 m/s short of planned GTO.
