diation), binaries (stars that trav-
el in pairs through space),
galaxies, and quasars (the most
iuminous objects at the edge of
the universe). "The search for
quasars will be the most produc-
tive ever conducted," said Dr.
Noah Brosch, an stronomer at
the Wise Observatory of Tel Aviv
University. The observatory is
the most active in the eastern
Mediterranean basin. "We expect
to catalog more than 10,000 new
quasars that will be identified by
their UN-optical colors. Only
about 4,000 are known today
from ground-based surveys."
In addition, the space telescope
will map the entire Virgo Cluster
of galaxies as well as 100 angu-
lar-sized galaxies. Using infor-
mation gained from the mission,
scientists can study the physics
of high-energy sources such as
neutron stars and black holes.
With the UV multicolored capa-
bility, scientists will gain unpar-
alleled insight into mechanisms
of star formation, composition,
velocity, size, age, luminosity,
and position. All this information
will not only add to our knowl-
edge of the present state of the
stars, their origin and past, but

The imager has three tele-
scopes, two of them for scientific
exploration. The third acts as a
sensor of direction and drift on
the satellite. This critical func-
tion is extremely important be-
cause the scientific work on the
satellite requires long exposures.
"The sensor compensates for the
problem of a smeared picture
caused by long exposure. With its
data on direction and velocity of
movement, it is possible to gen-
erate a picture as if there is no
movement," said Mr. Reis.
Designed for a longer time-in-
orbit than other shuttle-based
imaging systems, the spacecraft
will move in an elliptical orbit.
Since its apogee will be 200,000
km. From the earth, it will take
three days to orbit. A low-earth
orbiting satellite usually orbits
in one and a half hours. The satel-
lite is expected to remain in space
three years, which means that
the telescopes have to be prob-
lem-free for this extended period.
Another unique feature of
TAUVEX is that it provides a
field of view 500 times wider
than the wide field camera of the
Hubble Space Telescope.
The satellite will be launched
from the CIS (formerly the
USSR). The data transmitted
will be received in Russian terri-
tory, but it will be shared with
scientists from the various par-
ticipating nations. 0
