THESUNThe
most
advanced
and
largestspacecraft
in
the
OrbitingSolarObservatory
(OSO)
series
is
scheduled
for
launch
by
the
NationalAeronautics
and
Space
Administration
aboard
a
Delta
launch
vehicle
from
Cape
Kennedy,
Fla.,
no
earlier
thanSept

DesignatedOSO-H
(OS0-7
in
orbit)the
Observatorywillcollectvaluabledata
for
scientists
who
study
theSun.
The
primaryobjective
of
OSO-H
is
to
study
the
solarcorona.
Pictures

whitelight
corona,
thefaint
outermost

ofthe
solaratmosphere
that

seenonly
during
total
solar
eclipses,will.
be
photographed.
A

Brightstreamers
in
the
coronawill
be
recorded
up
to
distances
offive
millionmiles
from
Lhe
surface
of
the
Sun,
and
their
evolution
and
rotation
withthe
Sun
will
be
studied.
Active
regions
and
their
extentinto
the
corona
will
be
observed
by
the
X-ray
experimentwith
the
goal
ofunderstand-
ingtheir
role
in
heating
up
the
corona
to
millions
of
degrees,
and
theirrelation
tothe
streamers
seen
in
white
light.
During
active
periods
the
OSO-H
will,
obtainmeasurements
ofX-rayand
ultravioletradiation
fromhigh
temperatureplasmaexplosions
on
the
Sun,
calledsolar
flares;
the
causeof
these
explosions
andthe
method
by
which
the
plasma
reaches
temperatures
as
high
as
50
milliondegreescentigrade
are
stillunknown.
Radiation

the
tipperatmosphere
of
Earthwith
disruptive
effects
on
communications.Scientists
are
still
searching
for
an
accurate
way
to
forecastthesedisturbances.
The
OSO-H
studieswill
be
coordinatedwithground-basedobservatories
in
New
Mexico,
Maryland
and
Australia
to
maxi-
mize
the
scientificusefulness
of
