Nov Dec STATUS G G WF4 CCD on WFPC2 showing anomalous bias behaviour. Caused by aging
on-orbit: bias is very temp dependant, so work around is to restrict temp variations.

Replan due to delays in telescope readiness complete. LAT in instrument-level I&T. S/C appendage release mech. change, computer conformal coating contamination & electronic parts problems threaten launch date. Awaiting RTF flight 2 for servicing decision. Planning continues for 12-2007 mission. All hardware development has been completed. All hardware development has been completed. Optics progressing on new schedule. Element CDR's progressing well. Awaiting decision on Mission Confirmation. Replanning continues. Replan and independent assessment to be complete in April. Navigator program-level rqmts being rebaselined due to FY06 operating plan. Future direction of Beyond Einstein program awaiting release of FY07 budget. Future direction of Beyond Einstein program awaiting release of FY07 budget. Navigator program-level rqmts being rebaselined due to FY06 operating plan. Antarctic campaign ended successfully with flight two times around South Pole in 28 days 9 hrs. Payload recovered. Scope of project reduced but still supports KI, LBTI & SIM on timely basis.

The Universe
What’s Changed: • SIM LRD no-earlier-than 2015/2016; TPF deferred; Keck Outriggers cancelled • JWST cost growth estimates incorporated for 2013 LRD • HST SM-4 scheduled for early FY 2008 • A review of SOFIA will be held in 2006 in order to determine the best course of action • GLAST completed a schedule and cost re-baseline mainly due to development problems with the LAT; LRD no-earlier-than September 2007 • Kepler confirmation baseline established; WISE confirmation review conducted, budget assumes the project will enter development in 2006 • Research & Analysis funding reduced approximately 15% • Herschel and Planck budgets adjusted to reflect changes in schedule • A re-plan of the Beyond Einstein Program (LISA, Con-X and JDEM) will be conducted to determine which mission will be selected to proceed first What’s Stayed the Same: • Chandra operations and data analysis will continue through 2011 • Spitzer operations will continue through lifetime of cryogenic mission • Maintain support for NASA work associated with Herschel and Planck
