Astro-1 Space Shuttle Mission

ASTRO-1 ASTRO-1 (STS-35) was flown on board the Space Shuttle Columbia December 2 -11, 1990.

The Wisconsin Ultraviolet Photo-Polarimeter Experiment (WUPPE) was one of three ultraviolet telescopes (the Hopkins Ultraviolet Telescope (HUT) and the Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (UIT) were the others) and one x-ray telescope (the Broad Band X-Ray Telescope (BBXRT)) on the ASTRO-1 payload. WUPPE made 98 observations of 75 targets (25 of which were prime WUPPE science targets).
