UV Solar Spectrum (200-358NM) from Spacelab 1 (STS 9)
Entry ID: Spacelab1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The first Spacelab mission was a joint NASA and European Space Agency (ESA)
mission. Spacelab 1 consisted of a pressurized compartment (module) for
housing equipment and flight personnel and a space-exposed platform to
accommodate instruments. The compartment and platform were flown into space
and returned inside the payload compartment of the Space Shuttle. The mission
lasted 10 days, and while in space, the Shuttle payload compartment doors were
opened to allow viewing of the earth, sun, and deep space. Spacelab 1 was a
multidiscipline mission comprising five broad areas of investigation:
Atmospheric Physics and Earth Observations, Space Plasma Physics, Astronomy
and Solar Physics, Material Sciences and Technology, and Life Sciences.

A floppy disk containing UV Solar spectrum (200-358 nm) is available at NSSDC.
