Q&A: Chandra Mission

Q:
Is the HRC still functioning and what role, if any, has it played in recent discoveries?

A:
HRC
HRC
Yes the HRC is still functioning, and producing beautiful images. The ACIS is used for most of the images because of its ability to make images at different energies. The HRC is used primarily when fast time resolution is needed, as for example in studies of pulsars. You can find the HRC images by browsing through the photo album and looking for ' HRC ' in the Fast Facts section. See, for example: http://chandra.harvard.edu/photo/2001/0022/index.html.
