The OSO-7 Satellite
OSO-7, like the other Orbiting Solar Observatory missions, was primarily a solar observatory designed to point a battery of UV and X-ray telescopes at the Sun from a platform mounted on a cylindrical wheel. The detectors for observing cosmic X-ray sources were the X-ray proportional counters, built by MIT, the hard X-ray telescope by UC San Diego and the Gamma Ray Monitor by the University of New Hampshire.
NSSDC holds the OSO-7 data in their native format.
