On August 11th, at 12:48 A.M,GTS-2 ended with the safe landing of Columbia. It was the second orbital mission of the GTS program. It orbited the earth 80 times, and traveled a distance of approximatly 2,345,580 miles.

On August 5th at 12:00:02 PM main engines were engaged and achieved liftoff horizontally. DG Columbia then turned to 42 degrees (north-east) to simulate a ISS mission's heading.
