Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 1 February 2013 9.00am EST

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

A Chandra image release was issued on Jan 28 describing an observation of DEM L50, a superbubble found in the Large Magellanic Cloud. Superbubbles are created by winds from massive stars and the shock waves produced when the stars explode as supernovas. For details see:

The schedule of targets for the next week is shown below and includes an observation of Swift J174805.3-244637, which is a continuing monitoring of a Target of Opportunity accepted on Sep 4.
