FUSE: Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer

Designed and built by Johns Hopkins University, the FUSE satellite was launched on June 24, 1999 and lately has been returning important data on the Milky Way galaxy. In collaboration with NASA, the University of Colorado at Boulder, and the University of California at Berkeley, among others, FUSE uses "the technique of high-resolution spectroscopy in the far-ultraviolet spectral region" to provide data for exploring questions relating to the Big Bang and the chemical evolution of galaxies. The mission's Homepage contains a Technical Info section with online scientific and technical papers (.ps, .pdf). The User Support section holds information on instrument updates and timeline plots (.ps) and contains a FUSE data archive. Also, the site offers a thorough general information section with contacts, FAQs, photos, and press articles.
