Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 17 February 2006 8.00am EST

During the last week Chandra completed the observing schedule as planned.

A Chandra image release of the Supernova Remnant Puppis A was issued on 15 February. The Chandra image of a region of the supernova remnant reveals a cloud being torn apart by a shock wave produced in the supernova explosion. This is the first X-ray identification of such a process in an advanced phase. For details see: http://chandra.harvard.edu/photo/2006/puppisa/

The schedule of targets for next week is shown below and includes an observation of XTE J1817-330 coordinated with RXTE. The load also includes an observation RS Oph that was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time TOO this week.
