A gamma ray spectrometer analyzed the chemical composition of the crust. Lander/orbiter pairs Venera 9 and The Soviet probe Venera 9 entered orbit on Octo , becoming the first artificial satellite of Venus. A battery of cameras and spectrometers returned information about the planet's clouds, ionosphere and magnetosphere, as well.

The satellite was called the Solar Maximum Mission (SMM) because its launch was timed to coincide with the peak activity of the Sun's year cycle. The Solar Max satellite incorporated gamma ray, X-ray and ultraviolet spectrometers to look at solar flares across all the higher energy portions of . X-rays have much higher energy and much shorter wavelengths than ultraviolet light, and scientists usually refer to x-rays in terms of their energy rather than their wavelength. This is partially because x-rays have very small wavelengths, between and 3 nanometers, so small that some x-rays are no bigger than a single atom of many elements.

Another is the Hard X-Ray Burst Spectrometer (HXRBS) that is sensitive to photons up to energies of keV. Preliminary identifications of instrumental and atmospheric background lines detected by the gamma‐ray spectrometer on NASA’s Solar Maximum Mission satellite (SMM) are presented.

The long‐term and stable operation of this experiment has provided data of high quality for use in this analysis. Methods are described for identifying radioactive isotopes which use their different decay by: 4.

Gamma-ray continuum emission from to 1 MeV was observed with the gamma-ray spectrometer on the Solar Maximum Mission satellite during two impulsive solar flares on Ma from active. The Gamma‐Ray Spectrometer (GRS) on NASA’s Solar Maximum Mission satellite detected gamma‐ray line emission from the decay of 5 6Co in SN A.

The Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous – Shoemaker (NEAR Shoemaker), renamed after its launch in honor of planetary scientist Eugene Shoemaker, was a robotic space probe designed by the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory for NASA to study the near-Earth asteroid Eros from close orbit over a period of a year.
