Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 28 July 2023 9.00am EDT

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

On Jul 23, we celebrated the 24th anniversary of Chandra's launch and 24 years of successful scientific operations. The spacecraft and instruments continue to operate superbly and we look forward with excitement to the coming year of science discovery!

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of LTT 1445A, which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on May 26 and is coordinated with JWST, and observations of 4U 1626-67, which was accepted as a Director's Discretionary Time Target of Opportunity on Jul 13.
