- Atlas Rockets Could be Ready to Fly Again by September
ARIANE LAUNCH DELAYED
An anomaly in the electrical system delayed the launch of an Ariane 42P
rocket carrying an Indonesian Telkom 1 telecommunications satellite.
The electrical system will need to be replaced, so the launch has been
delayed for another - yet unannounced - launch date.
CHANDRA ISN'T QUITE WHERE IT'S EXPECTED
Recent course corrections by the Chandra X-Ray observatory have
placed the space-based telescope a little off its final orbit - but
well within operational parameters. Flight engineers plan to use the
telescope's navigational thrusters to place it in its
working orbit - 140,000 kilometers.
ATLAS ROCKETS COULD BE READY TO FLY AGAIN BY SEPTEMBER
After a rash of disastrous launches, the Air Force called for the
grounding of all launches. Now thorough investigations by both the
Air Force and rocket manufacturers have turned up a series of flaws
in the assembly of the engines. The rocket manufacturers are working
quickly to upgrade the malfunctioning components, and hope to have
the rockets ready to fly as early as next month.
