Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 29 September 2006 9.00am EDT

During the last week the observing schedule was replanned to include an observation of CXO J164710.2-455216 that was accepted as a fast turn-around Target Of Opportunity (TOO) on September 22. Loads were replanned and uplinked on September 25. As a result of the replan, an observation of G13.9-0.0 was added to the schedule and an observation of HESS J1713-381 was impacted and will be rescheduled in a later load.

A Chandra press release was issued on 27 September describing observations of the HII region NGC 3576, a cluster of point-like X-ray sources, some of which are massive young stars that are shredding the cloud of gas from which they formed. For details see:
