Suzaku News #081: Suzaku Status

Dear Suzaku users,

Around 19h on 16 January 2014, Suzaku attitude control system turned to the
safe hold mode due to  low battery voltage.  After about 50000
charge/discharge cycles, batteries are degraded as it should be. We are
trying to bring back the spacecraft to observation very carefully.  We will
let you know the status soon again.

Best regards,

Kazuhisa Mitsuda, Suzaku project manager
and the Suzaku operation team
