Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 27 February 2004 9.99am EST

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

A real-time procedure was completed on Feb 21 to perform a manual unload of momentum. The unload was performed at an attitude that ensured a cool starting temperature and thruster performance was nominal throughout the unload.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes 1.5 orbits of the Chandra Deep Field South and two observations of the earth.
