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

A real-time procedure was completed on May 14 to update the on-board Ephemeris.

The Chandra Education and Public Outreach group has received the 2007 Pirelli International award for physics. The Pirelli award, established in 1996, is the world's first Internet multimedia award aimed at the diffusion of scientific and technological culture worldwide. Chandra was selected for the first of its series of video podcasts that illustrate the mission and results of NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory. For further details see:
