Below is a clickable image of flight missions with astronomy or astrophysics contributing significantly to the science objectives. Missions with a space/solar physics or planetary astronomy focus are generally not included on this page. The plot includes a couple of ground-based missions for completeness.
Alternatively, see the NSSDC Flight Missions listing page for a more complete listing of astrophysics missions (alphabetical listing along with wavelength information).
Clicking on a mission name in the image will take you to the NSSDC Master Catalog entry and NSSDC data archive information. Clicking on a colored bar, to the right of the mission name, will take you to the active data archive/other mission information.
|A blue bar indicates a past/current mission.|
|A green bar indicates a mission in development.|
Please note that some of the spectral coverage is not continuous and multiple instruments may be represented above in a single line (e.g. COBE).
