NASA Unveils Advanced X-Ray Telescope

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
A team of Eastman Kodak engineers completed its next-generation x-ray telescope for NASA's new Advanced X-Ray Astrophysics Facility. Slated for launch in August 1998, the telescope will be a key component in the space agency's string of space observation systems, bridging the gap between the Hubble Space Telescope, which operates in the visible spectrum, and the TRW-built Compton Gamma Ray Observatory, which observes cosmic energy. Observatory testing is scheduled for completion in the spring of 1998, when the observatory will be air-shipped to Cape Canaveral, Fla., for shuttle integration and launch operations.
