1.1 Recent EUVE Science Highlights
	by Dr. Pierre Chayer, CEA Scientist


   Drs. Jeremy Drake (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics),
Robert Stern (Solar and Astrophysics Laboratory, Lockheed Martin), Guy
Stringfellow (University of Colorado), Mihalis Mathioudakis (Armagh
Observatory, Northern Ireland), Martin Laming (E. O. Hulburt Center
for Space Research), and David Lambert (University of Texas at Austin)
reported the detection of quiescent EUV emission from the very low
mass dwarf star VB 8 by the Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) in the
Lexan/B band (65-190 Angstrom). The observation of VB 8 spanned the
period 30 Jul 1994 23:08 to 8 Aug 1994 23:59 with an effective
exposure time of about 200 ksec. This observation allowed the
detection of VB 8 as a source in the resulting EUVE Deep Survey
detector image, with a count rate of 1.98 counts/ksec. Dr. Drake and
his collaborators interpret this emission in terms of a hot coronal
plasma.  Combining observations made by the Einstein and ROSAT x-ray
satellites, and EUVE between 1979 and 1994, they argue that their
results are consistent with the picture of a turbulently driven or
distributive dynamo for VB 8, rather than with a large-scale field
dynamo that appears to dominate the solar corona. For further
information about this report please refer to the original article
published in The Astrophysical Journal, Vol. 469, page 828.


   Drs. Knox Long (Space Telescope Science Institute), Christopher
Mauche (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory), John Raymond
(Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics), Paula Szkody
(University of Washington), and Janet Mattei (American Association of
Variable Star Observers) reported the observation with the Extreme
Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) satellite of U Geminorum during the peak
and declining phases of a wide outburst. Known as one of the brightest
dwarf nova at outburst, U Geminorum was one of the brightest EUV
sources in the sky at its maximum. The observations of U Geminorum
were carried out with the spectrometers on EUVE, beginning on 28 Dec
1993 and extending through 8 Jan 1994. For further information about
this report please refer to the original article published in The
Astrophysical Journal, Vol. 469, page 841.

1.2 EUVE Episode 5 NRA
	by Dr. Ron Oliversen, EUVE Deputy Project Scientist (GSFC)

   The much-delayed EUVE Guest Observer NASA Research Announcement
(NRA) for episode 5 is expected to be released in early December with
the proposal deadline, 60 days later, in early February 1997.  This
NRA will not request budgetary information; however, about $400k is
expected to be available for GOs.  The NRA proposal process will be
conducted by NASA Headquarters and the EUVE Project Science Office at

   It is expected that this NRA will be the last major activity of the
EUVE Project Office at GSFC before Mission Management is turned over
to CEA/UCB in the Spring of 1997.  However, until that transfer, the
Project Science Office will continue to manage the EUVE GO Program.
For additional information please contact Dr. Ron Oliversen

[Ed.: The following memo is by Dr. Guenter Riegler, NASA Headquarters
EUVE Program Manager, regarding the justification for this shortened
(60 days vs. the usual 90 days) NRA open period.  This memo has been
included at the request of Dr. Roger Malina, CEA and EUVE Observatory



   To:  H. Brinton
   From:  G. Riegler
   Subject:  Justification for 60 day open period for EUVE NRA

      This memo requests that the next Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer
   (EUVE) Guest Observer NRA have a 60 day open period from date of
   the NRA release to proposal due date.  A shorter than 90 day period
   is justified since

    - EUVE, now in its fifth year of operation, is a mature mission
      with few and minor changes [in] its operation or data processing
    - this NRA will be the fifth, nearly identical, call for proposals
      in the EUVE Guest Observer program;
    - this year's NRA is three months later than previous NRAs in this
      cycle, due to circumstances beyond our control;
    - EUVE Guest Observers are very experienced in their use of the
      EUVE data;
    - most of potential proposers would already have EUVE experience;
    - most of the proposed targets would have been previously observed
      by EUVE due to the very limited number of targets available in
      the extreme ultraviolet spectral range;
    - since most of the EUVE observations have durations of a few
      days, EUVE usually does 1 or 2 targets a week, thus
      observational proposals and operations are rather simplified.

      In addition, the 60 day open period will facilitate the transfer
   of EUVE project management from Goddard Space Flight Center to the
   University of California at Berkeley, as mandated by the
   Cooperative Agreement signed between NASA and the University of
   California at Berkeley in August 1996: the start of episode five
   Guest Observer observations would coincide with the transfer of
   project responsibilities, expected to occur by the end of March

1.3 NASA SEUS Strategic Planning -- EUV?
	by Dr. Roger Malina, CEA and EUVE Observatory Director

   Other than EUVE the only mission currently planned with EUV
capability is NASA's Advanced X-ray Astrophysics Facility (AXAF)
mission -- and that shortward of 150 A only.  If you have ideas or
comments for future NASA EUV missions, now is a good time to speak up.

   The NASA Structure and Evolution of the Universe (SEUS)
Directorate, under which falls EUVE and all future EUVE missions, is
currently doing long-range planning activities.  If you are interested
in commenting on NASA's priorities and plans please refer to the
current state of these activities at

You can contribute your comments through that WWW site or by
contacting Roger Blandford (, the Chair of the
SEUS Advisory Group.  I am also an Advisory Group member and can
forward comments or questions.  I will also be making a presentation
to the Advisory Group in Jan 1997 on NASA's EUV mission prospects and
opportunities, and would welcome material that you would like to have

   We have measured the light curve and spectrum of NGC 5548 obtained
with the Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) during a period when the
galaxy was also intensively monitored with Hubble Space Telescope
(HST), the International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE), and ground-based
telescopes.  NGC 5548 was observed with EUVE for a total of about 20
days spread over a period of two months.  The broad-band extreme
ultraviolet (EUV) light curve showed several factor-of-two variations
on 0.5-day time scales and one factor-of-four decrease over two days.
The normalized variability index was smaller than in the EUVE
observation of Mrk 478.  Cross correlation of the EUV light curve with
the contemporaneous ultraviolet light curve indicates that the EUV and
UV/optical variations are, to within the limitations of these data,
simultaneous, although the amplitude in the EUV is twice that in the

   The shape of the EUVE spectrum is consistent with a gradual
steepening from the UV through the soft X-rays.  Contrary to reports
by others, we do not detect any emission lines in the EUV spectrum
which would arise in optically thin spectral models. We believe that
the reported line detections were, in fact, due to a low level fixed
pattern in the detector background.  Models of the spectrum may be
constrained by the time-averaged flux in the broad-band detector
combined with the weakly constrained spectral shape. A thermal model
best describes the EUVE spectrum and its variations.

   We have analysed the EUVE spectrum of the DAO white dwarf RE
J0720-318.  In contrast to the optical spectrum, which can only be
fitted with a homogeneously mixed H+He atmosphere, we find the EUVE
spectrum can only be matched with a stratified structure. The H layer
mass of 3E-14 solar masses is a factor of ~10 below upper limits from
previous EUVE observations of white dwarfs. In addition, we detect an
unprecedented HeI/H ratio of ~1 for the absorbing column along the
line of sight, implying an H ionization fraction >90% if all this
material resides in the local ISM. We suggest that, since this is a
close pre-CV binary system, most of the helium probably lies within
the immediate vicinity of the star, possibly in the form of a
circumbinary disk left over from the common envelope (CE) phase. These
results have important implications for our understanding of the
evolutionary status of DAO white dwarfs in particular, and for post-CE
binaries in general.

   We have obtained new optical and extreme ultraviolet (EUV)
spectroscopy of the ultramassive white dwarf EUVE J1746-706.  We
revise Vennes et al.'s (1996a, ApJ, 467, 784) original estimates of
the atmospheric parameters and we measure an effective temperature of
46,500 +/- 700 K and a surface gravity log(g) = 9.05 +/- 0.15 (~1.2
M_sun), in agreement with Balmer line profiles and the EUV continuum.
We derive an upper limit on the atmospheric abundance of helium of
He/H = 1.3E-4 and a neutral hydrogen column density in the local
interstellar medium N_HI = (1.8 +/- 0.4)E+19 cm^(-2) from the EUV
spectrum. Our upper limit corresponds to half the helium abundance
observed in the atmosphere of the ultramassive white dwarf GD 50. We
discuss the possibility that EUVE J1746-706 represents an earlier
phase of evolution relative to GD 50 and may, therefore, help us
understand the origin and evolution of massive white dwarfs.

2.1 Notice To GOs On Turn-Off of EUVE Scanner C
	by Dr. Roger Malina, CEA and EUVE Observatory Director

   The EUVE project at CEA has recommended that the EUVE Scanner C
(the long wavelength) imaging instrument be turned off for cost
reasons.  This will reduce the number of data products that must be
produced and archived, and simplifies operations by reducing the
number of detectors that must be operated from seven to six. At the
recent meeting of the EUVE Science Advisory Board (ESAB) this
recommendation was discussed; the ESAB and GSFC Project Office
concurred with this recommendation. As a result Scanner C will be
turned off following completion of the current observations.

   EUVE Scanner C will still be available to EUVE GO or RAP proposals
that require it for a scientific program.  Scanner C can be turned on
for any observation for which it is justified.

   The decision to turn off Scanner C has generated some controversy,
since potentially there may be serendipitous scientific discoveries
that will now be precluded. I would encourage all GOs to inform me of
any discoveries made with archival Scanner C data, since such
discoveries could provide a rationale for re-activating this

2.2 Public GO/RAP Data Release for 1 Dec 1996
        by Dr. Nahide Craig, EUVE User Support Scientist

   The table below lists the GO/RAP observations that become public on
1 Dec 1996.  For each observation is given the target name, the
approximate exposure time in ksec, the GMT start/end dates, the
target's spectral type, and the data identification code (GO and RAP
data are marked accordingly).  All public data sets can be ordered
from the archive via WWW and electronic or postal mail (see addresses
below).  Please be sure to include in your order the DataID(s) of
interest.  Processed data sets are shipped via postal mail on 8mm tape
or (if requested) on CD-ROM.

   The data rights policies for observations state that Principal
Investigators (PIs) have proprietary rights to the data for a given
period of time from the date (s)he receives it.  It is often the case
that long observations are broken up over many months; e.g., an
observation approved for 60 ksec may actually be observed for 10 ksec
one month, 20 ksec the next, and 30 ksec three months later.  In such
cases the proprietary period begins after the PI is sent the final
piece of the completed observation.

3. EUVE Outsourced Extended Mission Status Report
	by Brett Stroozas, EUVE Flight Operations Manager

   Work continues to outsource EUVE satellite operations from GSFC to
the EUVE Platform Operations Center (EPOC) at CEA.  Upon successful
completion of this operations handover will commence the EUVE
Outsourced Extended Mission (OEM), currently scheduled to begin in Feb
1997.  The following sections describe some of the Oct 1996
outsourcing highlights.

3.1 Schedule Milestones

   The following timeline of major OEM-related milestones was worked
out in Oct.  Accompanying each milestone are some associated notes
that describe it.

     11/30/96	EPOC system integration and interface tests

	One set of all the major EPOC ground system components has
	been transferred as government-furnished equipment (GFE) from
	GSFC to CEA.  Work continues at CEA to complete integration
	and preliminary interface tests.

     01/03/97   EPOC end-to-end testing

	An informal EPOC end-to-end system test plan has been
	developed.  Preliminary telemetry and command testing has
	begun using (remotely) the spacecraft simulator at GSFC.
	Initial command tests to the spacecraft itself are scheduled
	for early Dec.

 12/06/96     Mission Operations Review

	Since the initial OEM working group meeting in Jun, CEA has
	been working to address the various issues raised by GSFC at
	that meeting.  All of the major issues have been resolved and
	preparations are underway for a formal OEM presentation at a
	Mission Operations Review (MOR) on 6 Dec.  Brett Stroozas and
	George Kaplan from CEA will travel to GSFC to present this

 01/06/97     Operational Readiness Review

	Upon completion of the EPOC development and end-to-end system
	testing an informal Operational Readiness Review (ORR) will be
	held with GSFC to ensure that CEA has met all operational
	requirements before entering into a shadow operations period
	(see below).

     02/19/97   Shadow Operations:  Scheduling

	Upon successful completion of the ORR CEA will enter a shadow
	operations period.  During the first four weeks of this period
	CEA will take over primary responsibility (with GSFC as
	backup) for all spacecraft scheduling activities.  GSFC will
	continue to retain primary responsibility (with CEA shadowing
	as backup) for real-time telemetry monitoring and commanding
	operations and engineering activities.  Planning for the
	implementation of this handover is currently in progress.

     02/19/97   Shadow Operations:  Commanding

	In early Feb CEA will take over primary real-time operations
	and off-line engineering responsibilities.  GSFC will serve as
	a "hot" backup during this time to ensure that CEA is
	successfully flying the spacecraft.

 02/27/97     OEM Completion Review

	After at least two weeks of successful commanding shadow
	operations (and at least six weeks of scheduling) a review
	will be held with GSFC to verify that CEA has successfully
	performed all spacecraft operations during the shadow period.
	At this time operational control of the EUVE spacecraft will
	be officially handed over from GSFC to CEA and the outsourcing
	activities will basically be complete.

3.2 EPOC Ground Systems

   Integration and test activities continued at CEA on the EPOC ground
system components.  A major focal point of the efforts was the Command
Management System (CMS), which provides spacecraft command generation,
validation, and management functions.  A number of the routine FDF
data products have been successfully processed through CMS, although
significant work remains.

Similar interface testing also continued with the Explorer Platform
Planning System (EPPS), which is used for scheduling spacecraft
contacts and activities.  The EPPS software appears to be working as
expected, although more specific testing will occur once the CMS is
fully functional.

The first "string" for the Transportable Payload Operations Control
Center (TPOCC) -- the command and control system used to communicate
with the satellite -- was delivered to CEA on 25 Oct.  TPOCC hardware
and software personnel from GSFC accompanied the string's delivery and
were able to get things up and running within a few days.  Before long
real-time data was successfully flowing from the satellite through the
TPOCC system.  A software procedure was also written to allow the
TPOCC system to autonomously handle unattended spacecraft contacts
during non-staffed hours; this was a major step toward the
implementation of single-shift operations, which is a major goal of
the OEM.

A few major communications milestones were also accomplished during
the month.  A Mission Operations Data Network (MODNET) connection was
established by NASA Communications (NASCOM) personnel.  This
connection provides a link with the GSFC Flight Dynamics Facility
(FDF), which supplies orbital and other data products necessary for
spacecraft planning and operations.  FDF also began the regular
shipping of data over these lines to CEA.  Work also began on the
installation of a new T1 line between CEA and GSFC.  It will be over
this line that telemetry and command data are transmitted between CEA
and the satellite.

3.3 FOT Staffing/Training

Staffing and training activities continued for the EPOC's Flight
Operations Team (FOT).  By month's end seven of the eight FOT
positions had been filled (see section 4 below for the remaining open
position), and six of the current seven FOT members had completed one
of two month's training with the incumbent Lockheed-Martin FOT at
