Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 7 May 2004 8.30am EDT

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

Preparations were completed to return to performing angular momentum unloads from the daily loads. A momentum dump is included in next week's loads and will be monitored in real-time on Saturday May 8 at 8am EDT.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes a series of observations of the bright comet C/2001 Q4 (NEAT) to be studied in conjunction with data from the CHIPS spectroscopic mission.
