10-Feb-99 | Delta flight 266 – Stardust

Stardust lifted off from Cape Canaveral’s SLC-17A at 16:04:15.238 EST on Sunday, 7 February, the second day of available instantaneous launch windows. Stardust, the fourth mission* in the NASA Discovery Program, will fly close to comet Wild-2 and will be the first spacecraft to return cometary material to Earth for analysis. The Delta 7426 provided yet another highly precise trajectory, according to launch commentators, and its second stage “videoroc” provided the most spectacular launch footage to date, transmitting stage and fairing separations with only minor static during staging events.
