The EUVE Electronic Newsletter was published quarterly by the EUVE Science Archive group and contained information on a variety of mission-related topics (e.g., science discoveries, the Guest Observer Program and the Science Archive). As events warranted, periodic news "flashes" were distributed to convey urgent and/or time-critical information. Past issues of the newsletter, along with some of the major highlights for each, are available below.

    Note that this issue of the EUVE electronic newsletter will be the last published on a monthly basis; beginning in 1998 distributions will be continued as events warrant (e.g., on a quarterly basis). This publication change is in response to the continued shrinking of available EUVE mission staffing and budgetary resources.
