Japan abandons $250mn black hole satellite
Tokyo (AFP) April 28, 2016
Japan is abandoning a quarter-of-a-billion-dollar satellite it sent to study black holes, disappointed space scientists said Thursday, after spending a month trying to save it. The ultra-high-tech "Hitomi" - or eye - was launched in February to find X-rays emanating from black holes and galaxy clusters. But shortly after the expensive kit reached orbit, researchers admitted they had lost control of it and said it was no longer communicating, with agency scientists saying it could have disinte ... read more
