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

Of note this week was the Einstein Fellows Symposium held in Cambridge MA on Oct 27-28. Presentations were made by 32 current Fellows, covering a wide range of topics in observational and theoretical astrophysics research.

The schedule of targets for the next two weeks is shown below and includes an observation of SMC X-2, which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on Oct 1, observations of V5668 Sgr and ASASSN-15lh, which were accepted as a Targets of Opportunity on Oct 5 and 19 respectively, an observation of the Crab coordinated with HST, an observation of M28 coordinated with NRAO-GBT, an observation of SDSS J1724+3135 coordinated with ground-based observatories, and an observation of IRAS 03219+4031 coordinated with NuSTAR.
