On 16 June 2018 reported: The Chandra X-Ray Observatory is a NASA telescope that looks at black holes, quasars, supernovas, and the like -- all sources of high energy in the universe. After more than a decade in service, the observatory has helped scientists glimpse the universe in action. It has watched galaxies collide, observed a black hole with cosmic hurricane winds, and glimpsed a supernova turning itself inside out after an explosion. ... X-ray astronomy is especially challenging because you need to leave the Earth's atmosphere behind to observe the rays. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

... Shortly before launch, the telescope was renamed 'Chandra' after Nobel laureate and astrophysicist Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar.

Chandra launched July 23, 1999, from the payload bay of space shuttle Columbia, the largest satellite the shuttle ever launched. ... When finalized, Chandra was in an elliptical orbit around Earth ranging anywhere from about 9,940 miles (16,000 kilometers) to 82,650 miles (133,000 kilometers) from Earth.

... Chandra's mission, originally expected to last five years and then extended to at least 10, is still going strong after more than 18 years of operations.
