Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 11 December 2020 9.00am EDT

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

Chandra passed through the eighth and ninth eclipses of the season on Dec 5 and Dec 8 respectively, with nominal power and thermal performance.

Real-time procedures were executed during each ground contact to reset the DSN Outage Dead Man Load.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes observations of FRB20200120E coordinated with NuSTAR and Effelsberg.
