Over eight years of operations, FUSE acquired over 6000 observations
of nearly 3000 separate astronomical targets.
All the archived data is now public and no longer requires user
Astronomers used FUSE to observe a tremendous range of object types,
from planets and comets in our solar system to hot and cool stars in
our Milky Way and nearby galaxies, and even to distant active galaxies
and quasars. However, FUSE's real claim to fame was its ability to
sense and diagnose the physical conditions in the tenuous regions of
interstellar and intergalactic space, regions that are often considered
to be empty!
