Time span: 1959-11-15 to 1960-05-24

Description

Selected nightime temperature data from the white sensor (hemispherical bolometer painted white) part of the Explorer 7 Thermal Radiation Experiment, are available on a single 7-track, 200-bpi, binary magnetic tape written on an IBM 7094 computer. In addition to the temperature measurements, the tape contains IR and orbit position data. The tape format is given in the document by V. Suomi, "Explorer 7 (1959 Iota 1) thermal radiation experiment," NASA-GSFC, NSSDC 67-17, Greenbelt, MD, Mar. 1967.
