Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 6 July 2007 9.00am EDT

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

Chandra passed through the 3rd, 4th and 5th eclipses of the 2007 Summer season on Jun 29, Jul 1 and 5 with nominal power and thermal performance.

A real-time procedure was executed on Jul 5 to perform a routine self-check of the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) Sequencer.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes observations of 3C 273, 3C279 and 3C454.3 coordinated with Spitzer.
