Space-Sail Satellite, Launched from Kodiak, is Missing PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 14 December 2010

            One of the packages aboard the Minotaur 4 rocket launched from Kodiak last month is missing, and may not even have released from the satellite.

            NASA says the Nano Sail-D, an 8.5-pound satellite carrying a solar sail, was supposed to be ejected from the Fast, Affordable, Science and Technology Satellite, known as FASTSAT, last Monday.

            Daily Tech is reporting that NASA had anticipated that three days after being deployed from the FASTSAT, the satellite would unleash a 100 square foot polymer sail. However, the Nano-Sail-D now appears to be lost.

            On Friday, NASA posted an update indicating, "it is not clear" that the sail was ever deployed, even though telemetry data showed it had.

            The 10-by-10-foot diamond-shaped sail was to have caught the solar wind and stay in orbit around the Earth for up to three months.

            According to the statement on its website, NASA says it will continue to troubleshoot and attempt to make contact with the Nano-Sail-D.

            Most of us know what it's like to scramble to make ends meet. Some months just seem to have more days than we have money.

            Between the dark days and Kodiak's lower temperatures a lot of people are feeling the stretch to make ends meet. But, some Kodiak residents are just not able to get those end to reach each other and are having to choose between food and heat.

            In addition to providing overnight housing, the Brother Francis Shelter also has grants to help people with emergency funds for fuel and electric bills

            Monte Hawver is the executive director of the shelter. He told KMXT's Maggie Wall that the shelter has had more requests for fuel aid the past several weeks than in previous years.

            Kodiak High School is adding an Alutiiq language class next month. The initiative follows a decade's worth of groundwork as well as interest expressed by a group of students.

            KMXT's Jacob Resneck reports.

 

(Correction: The first version of this story incorrectly reported that the Alutiiq language had not been taught in Kodiak public schools since the 1990s. The Kodiak Island Borough School District has had a weekly Alutiiq language class delivered by satellite to village schools for the past six years. That instruction is provided by the Alutiiq Museum's Language Program.)
