Caption: Ulysses spacecraft after deployment. Artist's impression of the Ulysses spacecraft in orbit, shortly after deployment from a Space Shuttle on 6 October 1990. Ulysses is the small brown object at left of the vehicle. The large cylindrical part is the Inertial Upper Stage (IUS) booster, the white spherical object between the two is the PAM-D booster. Ulysses was designed to study the fields and particles at high (70+ degree) solar latitudes by entering a near-polar solar orbit. It first crossed 70 South solar latitude in June 1994.
