Progress Detaches from Station

Image credit: NASA
An unpiloted Russian Progress cargo ship undocked from the International Space Station today to make room for a replacement ship due for launch on Thursday. The Progress undocked at 1743 GMT (12:43pm EST), and fired a rocket that will slow its orbit so it will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere and burn up. The replacement Progress will dock with the station on Sunday.

Six Telescopes Acting as One

Image credit: USNO
Astronomers from several US observatories announced that they have successfully merged the light from six independent Telescopes to form a single, high-resolution image of a distant multi-star system. To create an image with this level of detail, a single telescope would need to be 50-metres across - bigger than anything that currently exists. This technique, called interferometry, has been done with pairs of Telescopes before, but never with as many as six.

Grace satellites Launched

NASA and the German Center for Air and Space Flight successfully launched the gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment, or "Grace" today. The twin-satellite mission lifted off on Sunday from Russia's Plesetsk Cosmodrome on board a Rockot launch vehicle. Once in their final orbit, the satellites will separate to a distance of 220km apart, and will begin producing a high-definition gravity map of the Earth's surface to help scientists understand some of the factors that affect climate change.
