14-Feb-01 | EUVE shut down

The era of EUVE, the Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer, has ended. After making its last observations on 26 January, the spacecraft was commanded to switch off on 2 February. Also known as Explorer 67, EUVE was launched on Delta flight 210 on 7 June 1992, and opened a never-before-seen range of the electromagnetic spectrum to scientific observation. EUVE completed its primary mission in 1996 and has been a platform for guest observations ever since. It will likely perform an uncontrolled reentry about one year from now.
