Subject: HESSI - Launch Successful!!

Dear HESSI'rs

  HESSI was successfully launched today at 4:08 PM EST.
  Based upon launch vehicle data, the orbit is approximately
     586.85 x 600.24 km at 38.023 degree inclination
  The spacecraft telemetry was good all the way through launch
  with no anomalies.
  Congratulations to the launch team and good luck in turn-on!

- Peter

I am pleased to report that HESSI telemetry was picked up at Berkeley and
Wallops on the first orbit and that everything looks nominal. The solar
panels have deployed and the spacecraft is pointing close to the solar
direction. The orbit is very close to the nominal that Peter gave in his
last email and ground stations had no trouble picking up the spacecraft.
Peter Harvey has deployed to the Tiki Bar and asked me to send out this
message for him. Now I think I will join him there. Thanks for all the
messages of congratulations.

The first two passes went great: panels deployed, we are a couple of 
degrees from the Sun (nominal for this stage)
uplink, downlink and power are all nominal or
better.  Orbit is right on target (600 km circular, 38 degrees
