$75 million HESSI spacecraft Damaged in NASA Testing Error

NASA Administrator Admits Agency Stretched Too Thin

IMAGE to Reveal Magnetosphere

$75 MILLION HESSI spacecraft DAMAGED IN NASA TESTING ERROR

A NASA spacecraft designed to study solar flares was heavily damaged on

March 21st during a test at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). The

High-Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (HESSI) was shaken 10 times

stronger than originally planned during a test used to simulate launch

vibrations. Two of the craft's four solar panels were damaged, and the

mission will be delayed at least six months.

NASA ADMINISTRATOR ADMITS AGENCY STRETCHED TOO THIN

Wednesday NASA's administrator Daniel S. Goldin addressed the Senate

Commerce subcommittee on space. Goldin admitted that the agency made

management mistakes that contributed to recent mission failures, due to

trying to do more missions with less money. He also blames workforce

cutbacks and the loss of veteran engineering staff for poor training, leadership

and communication breakdowns between engineers, technicians and management.

IMAGE TO REVEAL MAGNETOSPHERE

The invisible magnetic world that surrounds our planet will be seen for

the first time with NASA's launch of the Imager for Magnetopause-to-Aurora

Global Exploration, or IMAGE. The magnetosphere will be photographed,

allowing us to view solar particles battering our magnetic bubble in the

beautiful aurora borealis.
