Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 21 January 2011 9.00am EST

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

An aspect camera dark current calibration was performed from the on-board loads on Jan 18. Assessment of the data indicates nominal aspect camera performance and that the number of CCD warm pixels is increasing at the expected rate. A real-time procedure was executed on Jan 20 to update the on-board ephemeris.

Of note last week was the conduct on Jan 19-20 of the Einstein Fellows Peer Review.

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below
