Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 13 February 2015 9.00am EDT

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

A Chandra image release was issued on Feb 12 describing observations of the supernova remnant G299.2-2.9. The shape of the supernova remnant today gives clues about the explosion that created it about 4,500 years ago. G299.2-2.9 belongs to the class of supernovas known as Type Ias. Astronomers are trying to determine the exact mechanisms that produce these particular explosions. For details see:
