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.
