NASA Daily News Summary For Release: July 13, 1999 Media Advisory m99-140 Summary: A New View

of The Cosmos: Space Artist's Work Unveiled Video File for July 13 ********** A NEW VIEW OF THE COSMOS: SPACE ARTIST'S WORK UNVEILED Congressman Lamar Smith (R-TX) and NASA Administrator Daniel Goldin will unveil the artwork of James F. Dicke II at NASA Headquarters, at 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, July 13. Dicke's influences include the Hubble Space Telescope, which peers beyond the theoretical capability scientists had calculated as the edge of existing matter. He believes that a work of art should engage the mind and draw the viewer into its surface, sharing the experience and wonder of the artist with the viewerÕs own experiences, curiosity and exploration of ambiguity.

Item 3 - Chandra B-Roll and Animation (replay) TRT 7:45 a - Astronauts at Telescope Assembly TRT - 3:28 Astronauts from the STS-93 crew visit the Chandra Telescope assembly. b - Chandra Readied for shipping TRT - 1:42 Chandra is bagged, put in a shipping container and readied for shipping to NASA's Kennedy Space Center. c - Chandra IUS arrival TRT - 1:11 Footage shows the Chandra X-ray telescope mating with the IUS Contact at NASA Headquarters, Washington, DC: Donald Savage 202/358-1727. Contact at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville AL: Dave Drachlis 256/544-6538. d - Mirror Comparison TRT - :37 Animation shows the refraction properties of the Chandra Xray telescope. X-rays that strike a mirror head-on are

absorbed. X-rays that hit a mirror at grazing angles are reflected like a pebble skipping across a pond. Thus, X-ray telescope mirrors are shaped like barrels rather than dishes. e - Deep Space Network TRT - :14 Animation shows the communication path between the satellite and the AXAF Science Center in Cambridge, MA. This communication is via NASA's Deep Space Network. f- Light Path TRT - :25 X-ray photons entering the telescope are reflected at grazing angles and focussed onto an electronic detector to make an image of a cosmic source.
