Chandra to Continue Operations During US Government Shutdown
NASA has designated Chandra as "excepted" during the Government shutdown and requested that SAO continue Chandra X-ray Center (CXC) operations. Since NASA is unable to provide funding during the shutdown, the Smithsonian Institution has agreed to advance funding to continue science and mission operations through mid-March, as necessary.
All CXC functions will continue during the shutdown period with with the exception of the issuance of Chandra observing grants and non-critical expenses such as conference travel for CXC staff.
