Congress. House. Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. Atlas/Centaur AC from the Eastern Test Range. The vehicle triggered lightning 49 seconds after launch resulting in GN&C failure and structural breakup. Both launch vehicle and Navy communication satellite were lost.

The Mishap. Early development. Convair, the manufacturer of the Atlas, developed the Centaur upper stage specifically for that booster, sharing its pressure stabilized tank structure. Technical. Centaur was the first rocket stage to utilize liquid hydrogen (LH2) and liquid oxygen (LOX) as propellants.

Despite high performance, LH2 had to be chilled at extremely low temperatures (lower than LOX) and its Function: Expendable launch system. On Maan Atlas/Centaur 67 vehicle carrying a naval communication satellite was launched at EST from pad 36B of the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.

The. Atlas Centaur, the world's first space launch vehicle with a liquid hydrogen-fueled stage, suffered through a troubled development phase that lasted from to Five of the first seven test flights failed before the eighth, AC, successfully boosted NASA's Surveyor 1 to the Moon on May August 29 Family: Titan, Atlas.

Launch Vehicle: Atlas Centaur. Centaur upper stage to be used with either Atlas or Titan boosters. ARPA issued order Number establishing the Centaur program that would provide a high energy, liquid-fuel upper stage for use with either the Atlas or.

The panel made this recommendation following the Challenger accident in January and the Atlas-Centaur 67 launch failure (Christian et al., ) after reviewing the large number of observing.
