Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 10 February 2006 7.30am EST

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

A real-time procedure was executed on 9 February to perform a routine self-check of the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) Sequencer.

A Chandra press release was issued in Feb 3 describing the detection of a hot gas halo around the spiral galaxy NGC 5746. The discovery provides evidence that galaxies like our Milky Way are still accumulating matter from the gradual inflow of intergalactic gas. For details see:

The schedule of targets for next week is shown below and includes observations of SS 433 coordinated with the VLA and M87 coordinated with HST.
