Does anyone know the entire timeline stats of a shuttle launch regarding speed, altitude & miles downrange at any given time during launch to orbit?
For example, at 3 minutes after launch, how fast, how high and how far?

Similarly, can anyone pass along reentry information? How high / fast at each point on reentry?

I'm kind of wondering why the launch platform is listed at -26 feet.

But I don't know where a landing profile exists offhand.

Maybe the bottom of the launch platform is below sea level, and they calculate from there ?

BTW: My office desk in The Hague lies on the geographical height of about -13 feet ...
