Chandra X-ray Observatory

Chandra X-ray Center EPO


Learn how the Chandra X-ray Observatory came into existence.

Launched in 1999, the Chandra X-ray Observatory is one of NASA's space telescopes. In this KML, you can explore how this amazing piece of technology was put together. From its conception to the launch at Cape Canaveral, see the model slowly form to become a 3D model within Google Earth itself. (Model by AmericanExplorer13.) If you have Google Earth 4.2, you can explore even further into space by clicking on the "Switch to Sky" icon located on the right of the top toolbar.
