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.
SETI@HOME NEARS A MILLION USERS
Online for only 3 months, SETI@home has 950,000 registered visitors,
continuing its position as the largest experiment in distributed
computing. In this time, they've processed more than 10% of the
backlogged data received by the giant Arecibo radio telescope.
