Chandra X-Ray Observatory Stuff

#1
It's a NASA satellite that observes the surrounding universe in x-ray wavelengths. That allows it to watch very energetic events like exploding stars and stuff falling into black holes.

Here's its primary website:

There are lots of interesting photos of high-energy astrophysical stuff behind the links on the left hand side of the page here.

Here's an interesting seemingly unofficial 'What is Chandra doing right now?' website run by some of the project's astronomers.

It seems to currently be running a series of calibration observations, the last 34 minutes ago.
