National Aeronautics and Space Administration.]. Determination of solar flare accelerated ion angular distributions from SMM gamma ray and neutron measurements and determination of the He-3/H ratio in the solar . Between February and August the Gamma-Ray Spectrometer (GRS) on the Solar Maximum Mission satellite (SMM) observed 71 gamma-ray bursts. These events form a representative subset of the class of classical gamma-ray bursts. journal article: satellite experiment to measure the intensity and energy spectrum of gamma rays from solar flares in the range 50 to mev. satellite experiment to measure the intensity and energy spectrum of gamma rays from solar flares in the range 50 to mev. full record.

– The Solar Maximum Mission (SMM) is launched on February One of the instruments it carries is called the Gamma-Ray Spectrometer (GRS). Another is the Hard X-Ray Burst Spectrometer (HXRBS) that is sensitive to photons up to energies of keV. Preliminary identifications of instrumental and atmospheric background lines detected by the gamma‐ray spectrometer on NASA’s Solar Maximum Mission satellite (SMM) are presented. The long‐term and stable operation of this experiment has provided data of high quality for use in this analysis. Methods are described for identifying radioactive isotopes which use their different decay by: 4. Gamma-ray continuum emission from to 1 MeV was observed with the gamma-ray spectrometer on the Solar Maximum Mission satellite during two impulsive solar flares on Ma from active. The Gamma‐Ray Spectrometer (GRS) on NASA’s Solar Maximum Mission satellite detected gamma‐ray line emission from the decay of 5 6Co in SN A .

The Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous – Shoemaker (NEAR Shoemaker), renamed after its launch in honor of planetary scientist Eugene Shoemaker, was a robotic space probe designed by the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory for NASA to study the near-Earth asteroid Eros from close orbit over a period of a year. The mission succeeded in closing in with the asteroid and orbited Mission type: Orbiter ( Eros). Figure The Solar Maximum Mission (SMM)satellite was operated during − Some instrument failures occurred early in the mission, such as the position encoder of FCSand several gyroscopes. Repairs of the satellite were performed by “Pinky” Nelson and Dick Scobee from the Space Shuttle Challenger in April A Science Strategy for Space Physics: Part III LDEF Long Duration Exposure Facility, launched on the shuttle in mids Max '91 Coordinated program for studying the Sun during the solar cycle maximum in Meteor-3 The Russian satellite carrying NASA's TOMS experiment, launched in MI Magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling MSX Midcourse. Paciesas was a GBM co-investigator from to and also served as the GBM Ground System Manager. From to , he worked on the Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) on the Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory, first as Mission Operations Software Development Manager and, from , as co-investigator.
