Friday 14 November 2003 11.30am EST

Last week the observing schedule was resumed at 7:25am on Nov 8 after radiation levels reached acceptable levels following the extreme activity of the last two weeks. A total of 741.7 Ks of science time was lost between 24 Oct and 8 Nov due to 4 load halts.

Real-time procedures were completed on 8 Nov associated with restarting the daily loads following the radiation shutdown.

The observing schedule for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of PKS2155-304 coordinated with XMM-Newton.
