The EUVE observations confirm what astronomers long have believed, but were unable to observe directly before the deployment of the new satellite.
Both ROSAT and EUVE have now completed the first surveys covering the whole sky at EUV wavelengths.
The EUVE results, which cover a broader wavelength range than the ROSAT data, confirm this parchiness in the absorption and density of interstellar gas.
Mauche presented EUVE data on SS Cygni, the brightest dwarf nova in the northern sky.
In August, the EUVE recorded extreme-ultraviolet light reflected from the first-quarter moon (see left image above).
Randall Gladstone (Southwest Research Institute) and two colleagues, the emission observed by EUVE can be explained if helium dredged up during the impact was spread over much of the Jovian upper atmosphere.
"It's an irritating region of the spectrum," agrees EUVE project scientist Robert V.
Beyond the activities of professional researchers, the EUVE program has strong ties to the educational and amateur-astronomy communities as well.
Researchers are now focusing on 385 of the brightest of these sources, which will serve as guideposts for the EUVE mission, reports ROSAT investigator Kenneth A.
And we did just that, since we were lucky enough to observe Nova Cygni 1992 with Voyager 2, the Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE), and the Rosat X-ray satellite.
May: Carrying four telescopes, the Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) will head into space to record the intensity and location of celestial emissions in a rarely studied portion of the electromagnetic spectrum: wavelengths shorter than most ultraviolet light but longer than X-rays.
* The Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer satellite (EUVE) will get an August launch from an unmanned Delta rocket.
