      CHANDRA TELESCOPE IN LOWER ORBIT THAN PLANNED

      The world's most powerful X-ray telescope isn't quite where NASA wanted it, but
      its orbit is still acceptable for astronomical observations. An engine firing
      over the weekend raised the high point of the Chandra X-ray Observatory's orbit
      to 86,433 miles, about one-third of the way to the moon. That's 559 miles lower
      than intended, but still well within the specifications.
