Abstract
The Chandra X-ray Observatory (CXO) has now been in orbit a little over three years. During that time, the High Resolution Camera (HRC) Science Team has been carrying out a program of science observations making use of all of the capabilities of the Observatory with particular emphasis on the capabilities of the HRC for high resolution timing, and high resolution imaging. In this review of Chandra science, we present highlights of the past three years of observations including detailed studies of the Andromeda Galaxy (M31), discovery of a pulsar in the Supernova Remnant 3C58, and studies of X-ray emission from the nearby AGN, Centaurus A.
