Paper Abstract

The First Spacelab Mission, launched on November 28, 1983, included several investigations to study the space plasma environment from Shuttle/Spacelab. The prime emphasis of these investigations was centered on the performance of particle injections (electrons, plasmas, ions, and neutrals) from the Shuttle/Spacelab and studies of the ensuing effects on the orbiter, the near orbiter environment, and the earth's atmosphere. The results of these investigations were intended to provide information required to plan for future beam-particle, and beam-atmosphere investigation programs.
