    Default Omelek Island discussion

    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    Omelek Island

    Omelek Island is part of the Kwajalein Atoll in the Republic of the Marshall Islands. It's controlled by the US military under a long-term lease.

    The small (3.2 hectares) island has long been used by the US for small research rocket launches due to its isolation.

    The island's equatorial proximity and nearby radar tracking infrastructure has attracted SpaceX, an orbital launch provider.

    SpaceX recently updated the Island's facilities and plans to conduct commercial launches of the Falcon 1 .

    A Target launch date for the Falcon I maiden flight is this Friday at 1 p.m. PST (21:00 GMT, 24th November, 2005)

    Default Wrong coordinates

    The coordinates are wrong, far to the east of the atoll's actual location in the Marshall Islands. I recommend changing the coordinate longitude coordinate from W to E to fix the problem.
