    This last week has been a rough one for space news, to say the least. The iconic Hubble Space Telescope has been placed in safe mode following a hardware failure, and a Soyuz booster failure resulted caused NASA Nick Hague and cosmonaut Aleksey Ovchinin to abort their trip to the International Space Station. Now, a second NASA satellite is offline following a hardware failure. The Chandra X-ray Observatory shut down on Oct. 10, and NASA is still assessing the situation to determine how it can get the satellite operational again.
