Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 21 November 2014 8.30am EST

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

A Chandra image release was issued on Nov 19 describing two new Chandra images of the supernova remnants MSH 11-62 and G327.1-1.1. The images reveal intricate structures left behind after massive stars exploded. Powerful winds of high-energy particles are released from the dense core of the dead star to create so-called pulsar wind nebulas. For details see:

Of note this week was the Chandra 15-Year Science Symposium held Nov 18-21 in Boston, MA. The meeting was very well attended and the range and quality of the science presented was outstanding.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below
