Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 10 August 2001 10.00am EDT

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

A Chandra press release was issued on 9 August describing observations that show that the X-ray glow from the plane of the Milky Way galaxy comes from hot and diffuse gas. This helps settle a long-standing mystery about the source of the X-ray emission. For full details see: http://chandra.harvard.edu/press/01_releases/press_080901.html.

The planned observations for the coming week are shown below and include one follow-up observation of the Target Of Opportunity, WZ Sge and several long LETG observations with HRC-S.
