Welcome to the Chandra (beta) Blog

Well, it's finally time for us to dip our X-ray toe (yes, we claim all things high-energy) into the world of blogging. This current incarnation is our attempt to work out the technology while we experiment with content. The plan is to include such topics as the most recent image or press release, new innovations on the website, and the latest in our formal education efforts.

That said, we are very much open to hearing about what suggestions you may have for this blog. Are there things about the Chandra mission or X-ray astronomy you would like to see us cover? If so, this is your chance to let us know. Thanks for taking a look our baby blog as it takes its first steps.

Dear Chandra-team,

thank you for this very nice and informative site, that - unlike so many other websites - goes a little deeper with explaining how things work. It is simple nice to drop by once in a while and read about what outer space holds in store for us:)

How did you go about choosing the name? "Chandra"?

I like it - it's very potent. I just wondered why your team chose it.

By OM

Discover the man behind the name, including which area of study he was awarded the Nobel prize for. And, see the details of the naming contest of the contest of the Chandra X-ray Observatory and winning essays.
