  • Published : 2004.04.01


Ever since it's successful launch on April 28, 2003, the Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) is producing excellent data and exciting initial science results. All flight and ground systems are healthy, and the on orbit performance of all systems is identical to ground performance. As of March 2004, GALEX has completed - 30 % of the planned primary surveys.
