Map of Observations
The Wisconsin Ultraviolet Photo-Polarimeter Experiment WUPPE was one of three ultraviolet telescopes on the ASTRO-1 mission flown on the space shuttle Columbia during 2-10 December, 1990. 98 observations of 75 targets were obtained. The same three instruments were later flown on the space shuttle Endeavour from 3-17 March, 1995, as part of the ASTRO-2 mission. During the longer ASTRO-2 mission, 369 observations of 254 targets were obtained. WUPPE was used to obtain polarization and spectrophotometry data to study the interstellar medium, hot stars, stars with circumstellar material, interacting binaries, novae, solar system objects, and active galaxies.
