any mysteries of the
universe are hidden in
the dark, murky un-
known. A new ultravio-
let space telescope, designed and
produced in Israel, will penetrate
the heavens and advance the
search for new stars, galaxies,
and quasars. A cooperate effort
between Tel Aviv University, the
Israel Space Agency and El-Op
Industries, it will be the probing
"eyes" on a spacecraft that will
blast off in 1995. Israel won the
bid for the payload on the multi-
national project — the first sci-
entific mission to observe
celestial objects in the ultravio-
let range.
El-Op, Israel's largest electro-
optics systems house, has earned
an international reputation for
its state-of-the-art military sys-
tems — day and night vision,
infrared search and tracking, pre-
cision laser systems, airborne
reconnaissance systems, etc. "We
had the basic infrastructure to go
into space technology," said
Eytan Reis, head of business de-
velopment for the space opera-
tion.
TAUVEX (Tel Aviv University
UV EXplorer) is designed to fill
an important gap in our knowl-
edge of the universe. Astrono-
mers have successfully tracked
the stars in a large portion of the
electromagnetic spectrum with
visible light, radio waves, x-rays,
and infrared radiation. But the
exploration of the UV portion has
been fragmentary.
"You cannot accurately observe
the UV spectrum from the
ground because the atmosphere
scatters UV radiation," said Mr.
Reis. "The only way to photo-
graph distant and weak stars is
by getting the scientific instru-
ment out in space."
TAUVEX will zoom in on
white dwarfs (young stars that
emit higi:--;19rgy ultraviolet ra-
