Mrs. Lalitha Chandrasekhar, wife of the late Indian-American Nobel Laureate Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, poses with a model of the Chandra X-ray Observatory in the TRW Media Hospitality Tent at the NASA Press Site at KSC. The name "Chandra," a shortened version of Chandrasekhar's name which he preferred among friends and colleagues, was chosen in a contest to rename the telescope. "Chandra" also means "Moon" or "luminous" in Sanskrit. The observatory is scheduled to be launched aboard Columbia on Space Shuttle mission STS-93
