CHANDRA DELIVERS A NEW SET OF IMAGES
The latest images from the Chandra X-Ray Observatory are in, and they are stunning. One of the most striking is a crossbow-shaped shockwave of warped gas around a pulsar. The star, located in the constellation of Vela, blew up 10,000 years ago, and the remaining pulsar is rapidly spinning out rings of high energy particles.
PROTOTYPE SOLAR SAIL BUILT
A group of engineers at the International Aerospace Exhibition unveiled a prototype of solar sail, designed to move through space "pushed" by the solar wind. This prototype will be launched on board a Russian rocket by the end of next year, and will carry a small satellite, capable only of transmitting its location back to the ground.
PEGASUS ROCKET LAUNCHES EXPERIMENTAL SATELLITE
A Pegasus rocket was dropped from the bottom of a US Air Force jumbo jet this morning as it was flying at 12 km above the California desert. Moments after it was dropped the engine ignited, and carried the rocket and its payload up into a successful orbit. The Pegasus was carrying a Tri-Service Experiments-5 satellite built by Orbital Sciences.
QUOTA REMOVED FROM UKRAINIAN LAUNCHES
President Bill Clinton announced on Monday that the U.S. government has removed a quota on American commercial launches on Ukrainian rockets. The quota was initially set up to protect American launch companies from Ukrainian competition, and it was removed because of the Ukraine's "steadfast commitment to international nonproliferation norms". Although, Ukrainian rockets haven't been in much demand by US companies.
