The instrument, named Alice, began mapping the comet s surface last month, recording the first far-ultraviolet light spectra of the comet s surface.
The instrument, named Alice, began mapping the comet's surface last month, recording the first far-ultraviolet light spectra of the comet's surface.
Among the topics are far-ultraviolet luminosity as a star formation rate tracer, modeling the double source-plane gravitational lens, the origins of the cosmic millimeter background, constraints on the star-forming interstellar medium in galaxies back to the first billion years of cosmic time, and dark matter annihilation and the cusp problem.
The NRL Space Science Division designed and built the Tiny Ionospheric Photometer (TIP) compact far-ultraviolet (FUV) sensors, which are being used onboard COSMIC to study the Earth's nighttime ionosphere.
In addition to WFC3, the SM4 included installation of the Ball-built Cosmic Origins Spectrograph (COS), an instrument 30 times more sensitive in the far-ultraviolet than earlier Hubble ultraviolet spectrographs.
This release includes new maps of far-ultraviolet (FUV) brightness, albedo and water-ice data as well as instrument exposure, illumination and other conditions.
That's because clouds of hydrogen gas absorb far-ultraviolet light, and the most distant galaxies have the largest amount of hydrogen gas between them and Earth (SN: 2/24/96, p.
COS will be 30 times more sensitive in the far-ultraviolet than earlier Hubble ultraviolet spectrographs, and will be able to observe distant quasars too faint for detection by previous spectrographs.
