CGRO Deployment

Compton Gamma Ray Observatory Deployment

The Compton Gamma Ray Observatory satellite with solar panels unfurled is pictured here high above western Africa just prior to its release into orbit. The large round domes of the EGRET (bottom) and COMPTEL (center) experiments are visible in this view along with four of the eight BATSE detectors located at the corners of the satellite. The OSSE experiment housing is visible just above the COMPTEL dome.
