The 66th Space Shuttle flight began with a nearly on-
time liftoff of the Orbiter Atlantis (STS-66) into the clear
Florida skies. Atlantis returned to space after a nearly
two year absence.
The plarned 11-day flight will
continue NASA's Mission to Planet Earth, a
comprehensive international collaboration to study how
Earth's environment is changing and how human beings
affect that change.
Primary payloads on this flight
included the Atmospheric Laboratory for Applications
and Science (ATLAS-3), making its third flight, and the
German-built Cryogenic Infrared Spectrometers and
Telescopes for the Atmosphere-Shuttle Pallet Satellite
(CRISTA-SPAS), which was deployed and retrieved
during the mission.
