|Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) Satellite Dataflow Demonstration|
This hands-on demonstration of the communications path between scientists and the NASA Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) Satellite shows how scientific data are downloaded from the satellite. The same demonstration can also be used to illustrate how the instruments on the satellite are commanded by scientists on Earth. It gives students a feel for the dynamics of satellite communications and orbital motion around the Earth. At the end of the activity, each student should be able to diagram the communications path between the EUVE satellite and scientists at the University of California Berkeley Center for Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) Astrophysics.
