Excerpt: 1995 was an ambitious and difficult year for the United States small launch vehicle market. A total of five small launch vehicles were launched from the United States, two of which were successful (Atlas E and Pegasus 1) and three of which resulted in failure (Pegasus XL, LMLV, and Conestoga). A total of four payloads were successfully deployed. Note that a small launch vehicle is defined as one capable of lifting no more than 5,000 ponds to low earth orbit. See the table below for a summary of currently operational U.S. small launch vehicles.
