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

A real-time procedure was conducted on July 31 to uplink a flight software patch to OBC-B to add on-board monitoring of selected propulsion line and valve temperatures. This completes the procedure conducted on July 27 during which the patch was uplinked to OBC-A.

The schedule of targets for next week is shown below and includes an observation of 4U 1820-30 coordinated with RXTE and the VLA.
