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

A real-time procedure was executed on Apr 2 to perform a routine self-check of the Electrical Interface Assembly (EIA) Sequencer. A second procedure was completed on Apr 2 to reinitialize the flight software Thruster Command Processing subfunction to clear a benign overflow condition.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below.
