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

Real-time procedures were executed on 5 April to perform a routine self-check of the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) Sequencer, and to perform a diagnostic dump of the Central Processing Electronics (CPE).

A Chandra press release was issued on April 6 describing observations of the detection in X-rays of a proto supermassive binary black hole. For details see:
