CHANDRA orbit FINALIZED

After a series of five orbital adjustments, the Chandra X-Ray

observatory has reached its final position, with an apogee

(or high point) of its orbit at 139,141 kilometers. The Chandra

team is now running the observatory through a series of tests

to ensure its instruments are in working order.

COSMONAUTS READY TO LEAVE MIR FOR THE LAST TIME

Mir has run out of money, and the cosmonauts on board have prepared

and installed the equipment necessary in order to abandon the

station in a few weeks. It's unlikely another crew will ever return

to the station, and if they do, it will be an extremely complicated

affair to get it operational again.
