While we like the written word as much as the next person, we thought it would be good to mix things up. We recently got a new, small, handheld video camera (about the size of a cell phone). The plan is to use this to add simple videos to the Chandra blog and other places on the website. Because it's handheld and very sensitive, it's easy for the videos to appear shaky and the sound is not perfect. We'll work on this for the future. In the meantime, here are a few videos of the press conference at last week's AAS meeting in Long Beach to announce the new results on Cas A (Cassiopeia A). In the videos, Daniel Patnaude of the SAO and Tracey DeLaney of MIT are seen presenting their results and answering questions from the media. Let us know what you think of this new introduction of multimedia in our blog.

nice video, i like to watch

Nice video, I like to watch space videos. Thank you for the video

Great Foot

Wow the videos are interesting. I am very fond of watching space programes I use to watch every program on tv about space programs.



Thanks for posting these. I particularly like the last video, where one gets a brief 'behind-the-scenes' look. Would very much like to see more 'people-behind-Chandra' videos.

can't watch

Why can't I watch video?
should I install flash player or similar software to watch it?
