Preliminary Science Results from the Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer

  • Stuart Bowyer
Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 187)


The Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer has completed the first all-sky all-band survey for extreme ultraviolet (EUV) sources. Four all-sky maps have been obtained, centered at 100 Å, 200 Å, 400 Å, and 600 Å. A preliminary report on these results will be presented. The guest observer (GO) phase of the mission using the Deep Survey/Spectrometer telescope has begun, and a wide range of astrophysical topics are now being investigated. Highlights of the results obtained to date will be presented.
