Paper Abstract

The Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer Mission is described. The purpose of this mission is to search the celestial sphere for astronomical sources of extreme ultraviolet (EUV) radiation (100 to 1000 A). The search will be accom-plished with the use of three EUV telescopes, each sensitive to different bands within the EUV band. A fourth telescope will perform a higher sensitivity search of a limited sample of the sky in a single EUV band. In six months, the entire sky will be scanned at a sensitivity level comparable to existing surveys in other more traditional astronomical bandpasses.
