Storyboard Text

  • 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
