ENGINEERS FIND A PROBLEM WITH CHANDRA

Although it's responsible for the highest resolution X-ray images ever

produced, NASA technicians have found a glitch in one instrument: the

Advanced Charge-coupled Device Imaging Spectrometer (ACIS). NASA

is performing diagnostic tests to determine cause of the problem

and to see if they can fix it.

HUBBLE DISCOVERS GIANT star CLUSTERS

Recent observations using the Hubble Space Telescope have peered

into the galactic core of the Milky Way, and discovered massive

star clusters. Located only 100 light-years away from the very

center of the galaxy, and only 2-4 million years old, these clusters

contain some of the largest and brightest stars in the galaxy.

IT'S OFFICIAL, MIR'S COMING DOWN

Yuri Koptev, the Director-General of the Russian Space Agency has

announced that the Mir station will not be re-inhabited. Russia

can't afford the annual $250 million it would take to keep the

station operational, and so they expect it will return to Earth

sometime after March 2000.
