The Einstein CD

Einstein Observatory
SSS, MPC, and FPCS Data Products


Front cover of Einstein CD This CD contains astronomical data files derived from observations made with the Einstein X-ray Satellite (HEAO-B) using the Solid State Spectrometer (SSS), the Monitor Proportional Counter (MPC), and the Focal Plane Crystal Spectrometer (FPCS). The SSS and MPC data products contain summary spectra and light curves derived at the Exploration of the Universe Division at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. The FPCS files were produces at the Center for Space Research and Department of Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and include lists of every detected photon during each observation as well as summary spectra. This CD complements the CDs issued by the SAO Einstein Data Center which contain data from the Einstein IPC and HRI instruments. All of the data files on this CD are in FITS (Flexible Image Transport System) format.

This CD was produced and is distributed by the High Energy Astrophysics Science Archive Research Center (HEASARC) at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.
