The researcher highlighted one possible application of this configuration: "If you wanted to build telescopes with long focal length, you could mount the lens on one of the satellites and the detector on the other, which was already proposed -for instance- in the case of the Xeus
Constellation-X and ESA's XEUS
, have been repeatedly delayed.
Tokyo, Japan, Sept 11, 2006 - (JCN) - KDDI R&D Laboratories has developed XEUS (XML document encoding with uniformed sheet), software for encoding XML data at a high compression rate and decoding it on a handset using low-power memory.
XEUS enables the sender to verify the validity of data and convert data formats when compressing data, the tasks that are typically handled by the receiver handset, thus achieving decoding at high speed.
On a larger scale, the Constellation-X follow-on mission to the Chandra X-ray Observatory is facing further delays, and the idea of merging it with the European Space Agency's XEUS
X-ray Observatory is being floated.
Roughly a decade from now, NASA's Constellation-X mission and ESA's X-ray Evolving Universe Spectrometer (XEUS
)--each a flotilla of several spacecraft operating as a single observatory--will provide much larger collecting areas than now available.
