This storyboard was created with
CHIPS monitored hot solar plasma at temperatures between one and two million degrees Kelvin
CHIPS spectra clearly show that the standard plasma model used to synthesize the solar spectrum does not match features in the actual spectrum
the standard plasma model over-predicts emission from plasma at temperatures below one million degrees and above two million degrees Kelvin.
could detect wave lengths wavelengths from 90 to 260 Å
The CHIPS program demonstrated that a small (65 kg), three-axis stabilized spacecraft and science instrument could be built and operated for a fraction of the cost of traditional missions
Chips was launched from the ICESAT Delta-II launch vehicle
