5. Holding Their Breath at the OCC
Members of the Chandra X-ray Observatory management team, at the Operations Control Center in Cambridge, MA, watch with anticipation as data indicates the status of the first firing of the observatory's own rocket engines. The successful burn was the first of five that will boost the world's most powerful X-ray telescope to its operating orbit. Chandra's management and control team includes members from NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL; TRW Space and Electronics Group (now NGST), Redondo Beach, CA; and the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory in Cambridge. The observatory was deployed from the Space Shuttle Columbia Friday morning.
