I review the operational capabilities of the Chandra X-ray Observatory, including some of the spectacular results obtained by the general observer community. A natural theme of this talk is that Chandra is revealing outflows of great quantities of energy that were not previously observable. I highlight the Chandra studies of powerful X-ray jets. This subject is only possible due to the sub-arcsecond resolution of the X-ray telescope.
