From to an orbiting observatory known as the International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) studied celestial sources of ultraviolet IUE telescope was equipped with a cm (inch) mirror, and it recorded data electronically down to nm. The IUE observed from a geosynchronous orbit (i.e., its period of revolution around Earth was identical to the period of Earth’s. The International Ultraviolet Explorer satellite (IUE) was a joint project of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the European Space Agency (ESA), and the Planetary Plasma and Atmospheric Research Center (PPARC) in the United Kingdom. NASA provided the spacecraft, telescope, spectrographs, and one ground observatory created the solar panels for .

The World Space Observatory-Ultraviolet (WSO-UV) is an international space mission born as a response to the need for UV facilities by the astronomical community. WSO-UV will be the only 2-meter class UV mission after the end of HST operations, and will guarantee access to UV wavelength by: The successful International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) observatory, Russian ASTRON mission and successor instruments such as the COS and STIS spectrographs on-board the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) demonstrate the major impact that observations in Cited by: 1.

The International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE; also known as Explorer 57) was an astronomical observatory satellite primarily designed to take ultraviolet satellite was a collaborative project between NASA, the UK Science Research Council and the European Space Agency (ESA).. IUE was first proposed in early , by a group of scientists in the United Kingdom, and was launched on. The International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE, formerly SAS-D) satellite was a spaceborne ultraviolet astronomical observatory for use as an international facility. The IUE contained a cm telescope solely for spectroscopy in the wavelength range o to A.

When I became President of International Astronomical Union Commission 44 for the triennial periodseveral members of the Organizing Committee and I agreed that it would be a good idea for our Commission to host a conference on observatories in space in view of their increasingly.

Science Operations of the International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) Observatory Abstract The fundamental operational objective of the International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) program is to support competitively selected astronomical research program.

Abstract. This volume contains the final report for the International Ultraviolet Explorer IUE Observatory Operations contract. The fundamental operational objective of the International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) program is to translate competitively selected observing programs into IUE observations, to reduce these observations into meaningful scientific data, and then to present these.

Abstract. This volume contains the Final Report for the International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) Observatory Operations contract, NAS The report summarizes the activities of the IUE Observatory over the month period from November through November and is arranged in sections according to the functions specified in the Statement of Work (SOW) of the contract.

The International Ultraviolet Explorer ( - ) When the International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) went into orbit around the Earth in JanuaryJimmy Carter was US president, Leonid Brezhnev presided in Moscow, and Abba ruled the pop charts.

The IUE mission is a partnership of NASA, ESA and the British government. International Ultraviolet Explorer The International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) performed spectrophotometry at high ( Å) and low ( Å) resolution between Å and Å.

The data cover a dynamic range of approximately 17 astronomical magnitudes: 2 to 10 for high dispersion; -2 and for low dispersion. he International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) satellite was launched on 26 Januaryand operated as a Guest Observer space observatory for nearly 19 years.

IUE was, without doubt, one of the most successful astronomical facilities ever developed. Used by thousands of astronomers worldwide, it yielded overUV spectra (in the wavelength range A), covering stars Author: Allan J. Willis. This volume contains the Final Report for the Science Operations of the International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) Observatory contract, NAS The nominal period of performance for this contract is Octoto October 9, Under the terms ofa pre-contract agreement, however, work began on Augimmediately after the expiration of the predecessor IUE Observatory Operations contract.

Two on-board spectrographs covered ultraviolet wavelengths from to Å. Observers from around the world took advantage of this workhorse observatory, gathering data from a wide variety of astronomical sources.

Short and long wavelength spectrographic cameras covered ultraviolet wavelengths from about to nanometers. orbiting observatory known as the International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) studied celestial sources of ultraviolet radiation. The IUE telescope was equipped with a cm (inch) mirror, and it recorded data electronically down to nm.

Making ultraviolet observations, ranging from comets to quasars, the International Ultraviolet Explorer was the world’s longest-lived and one of the most productive satellites ever built. Mission The IUE is the longest-lived and one of the most productive satellites ever built.

This book was conceived to commemorate the continuing success of the guest observer program for the International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) satellite observatory. It is also hoped that this volume will serve as a useful tutorial for those pursuing research in related fields with future space observatories.

Developed during the s, the International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) was a joint project between the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA); Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council (PPARC), formerly known as the Science and Engineering Research Council of the United Kingdom (SERC); and the European Space Agency (ESA).

The World Space Observatory-Ultraviolet (WSO-UV) is a space telescope built to guarantee access to the ultraviolet range (ÅÅ) in the post Hubble Space Telescope (HST) epoch.

WSO-UV is an international endeavor led by the Russian Federal Agency, ROSCOSMOS. WSO-UV is a medium size scientific mission with a telescope of cm primary.Early space telescopes included the International Ultraviolet Explorer and the Einstein X-Ray Observatory (named after physicist Albert Einstein), both launched in ; and the Infrared Astronomical Satellite, launched in Today's Space Telescopes.The World Space Observatory Project is grown out the needs of the Astronomical community to have access to the Ultraviolet (UV) range of the spectrum.
