1. STS-93 Deployment of Chandra
This image of NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory following deployment from the Space Shuttle Columbia was taken from High Definition Television (HDTV) shot by Columbia Astronaut Mission Specialist Cady Coleman, during the STS-93 mission. This photograph shows the Inertial Upper Stage (with its cone-shaped nozzle) attached to the rectangular spacecraft bus. The mirrors fit in the inner part of the bus. The apparent gap in the telescope is due to a shadow cast by the bus. The X-ray cameras are housed in the Science Instrument Module at the end of the telescope. Chandra, the world's most powerful X-ray telescope, was deployed on July 23, 7:47 a.m. EDT.
