    The Wave-Front Correction System for the Sunrise Balloon-Borne Solar Observatory.;The central aim of the Sunrise project is to understand the structure and dynamics of the magnetic field in the solar atmosphere. The magnetic field is the source of solar activity, controls the space environment of the Earth and causes the variability of solar. It is of great scientific interest, though, to sample directly the ions that exist-0 2+, N 2+, 0 +, NO+, He +- t o identify ionization mechanisms and trace the complex chemical- reaction kinetics of this thin medium. Scientific satellites may dip into the ionosphere to an altitude of kilometers at perigee. Lower altitudes would radically.

    The INTEGRAL (and XMM-Newton) Mission Extended Operations Review took place in May and the board concluded that (i) the scientific interest in both missions remains high; (ii) all mission elements are stable and trouble free with sufficient consumables and life-limited items to allow operation of both missions up to at least ; (iii.   After Mars, it is the second reddest object in the solar system. It is estimated Sedna is approximately three-fourths the size of Pluto. Sedna is likely the largest object found in the solar.

      The accuracy[1] of a measurement system is the degree of closeness of measurements of a quantity to that quantity’s actual (true) value. The precision[1] of a measurement system, also called reproducibility or repeatability, is the degree to which repeated measurements under unchanged conditions show the same results. Thanks Lucy for the link. calibrate: To match the readings of an instrument with those of a standard in order to check the instrument’s accuracy. The process of doing this is calibration. calorimeter: A device used to measure the heat generated in a chemical reaction or other process. The California Institute of Technology (Caltech): Caltech, established in as Throop University, is a private research university.

This paper describes a general-purpose balloon-borne pointing system for accommodating a wide variety of solar scientific instruments.

It is designed for precise pointing, low cost, and quick launch. In this paper we describe two stabilization systems developed for balloon borne payloads in X-ray astronomy experiments.

One of them was employed in a 19 hours transmediterranean flight during summer The gondola, with a two stages pointing system was at lift-off about kilos; the pointing requirement was degrees precision.

Report of the Panel on Solar and Heliospheric Physics. To grasp immediately the nature of the field of solar and heliospheric physics, one need only look at the striking image of the solar eclipse shown in Figure The solar atmosphere extends outward from the Sun’s surface, apparently without end.

The larger scientific satellites, like OGO I, now use horizon scanners in conjunction with solar-aspect sensors to provide attitude information and help orient the solar panels. The most difficult navigation tasks occur on the solar and astronomical satellites.

Applications include communication with distant spacecraft; radar studies of solar system objects; radio astronomy; and perhaps other scientific uses. A significant challenge is the implementation of an array for transmitting (uplinking), which may or may not use the same antennas that are used for receiving.
