Odyssey Deploys Communications Antenna

Image credit: NASA
NASA's Mars Odyssey spacecraft deployed its high-gain antenna on Tuesday night, establishing a high-speed connection between the spacecraft and controllers back on Earth. Flight controllers tested the boom to ensure it can communicate with different locations on Earth and then pronounced the deployment "successful". Science instruments on the spacecraft are expected to begin collecting data later this month.

Hubble Reveals Backwards Galaxy

Image credit: Hubble
The latest image released from the Hubble Space Telescope shows a spiral Galaxy that seems to be rotating in the wrong direction. Astronomers expected that Galaxy NGC 4622, located 111 million light-years away in the constellation Centaurus, should rotate counter-clockwise but it actually goes clockwise. It's believed that the Galaxy consumed a smaller companion Galaxy recently which helped reverse its spin.

Entire Earth Imaged

Image credit: NASA
NASA has released a new set of photographs which form the most detailed true-colour image of the entire Earth ever created. The photographs are taken at a resolution of 1km and include the land, seas and even clouds and sea ice. Much of the data for this image was gathered by NASA's Terra satellite, from an altitude of 700km. An additional image shows actual city lights superimposed over a darkened version of the photograph.
