Operations CXO Status Report

Friday 2 March 2001 11.30am EST

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

Chandra passed through eclipses 4 and 5 of the 2001 Spring season with nominal power and thermal performance.

Real-time procedures were completed during last week to perform the ACA Dark Current Calibration and to check the value of the CPE warm-start count (remained at 1).

The planned observations for the coming week are shown below and include an observation of NGC 3783 coordinated with the Hubble Space Telescope, FUSE, RXTE, and ground based observations. The coordinated portion of the observation will occur between 4.30am and 4.30pm on March 11.
