Caption: The Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) astronomy satellite ready for launch. At the top of the satellite are the three circular ports for its ultraviolet telescopes. The large white panels at the top are the solar cell arrays in their stowed position. EUVE was launched on a Delta II rocket on 7 June 1992. Following a 30-day in- orbit checkout period, EUVE will commence an all- sky ultraviolet survey. Following this, various objects of interest will be studied using EUVE's deep survey spectrometer. Among objects that are expected to be observed are white dwarf stars, neutron stars, binary stars and the coronae of red dwarf stars.
