The Chandra X-ray Observatory is the largest object ever carried into space by the Space Shuttle. Scientists and engineers faced many challenges before they completed the powerful new satellite. But their hard work paid off. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) launched Chandra in July 1999. Today, this remarkable satellite sends vivid and astounding X-ray images back to Earth.
