Diary from the Munin Launch Campaign


Munin was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base (VAFB) on November 21, 2000, 18:24 UT (19:24 Swedish time, 10:24 local time in California).


Munin was launched as a secondary payload together with the NASA remote sensing satellite Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) and the Argentinean satellite SAC-C. The launch vehicle was a Delta-2 7320-10C.


Munin was placed in an elliptical orbit, 698 x 1800 km, at 95.4 degrees inclination.



The Munin team at VAFB consisted of Olle Norberg and Walter Puccio. We arrived at Lompoc (the city closest to VAFB) on October 29.
