The Ulysses Mission is the first spacecraft to explore interplanetary space at high solar latitudes. Ulysses is both a study of the European Space Agency (ESA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) of the USA. The spacecraft and spacecraft operations team is provided by ESA, and the launch and the spacecraft, radio tracking, and data management operations are provided by NASA. Scientific experiments are provided by investigation teams in both Europe and USA.


This spacecraft was launched on October 6, 1990. It was originally proposed as a dual spacecraft mission to explore the regions over the Sun’s north and south poles. In order for the spacecraft to reach these high solar latitudes, it was aimed close to Jupiter so that Jupiter’s large gravitational field would accelerate Ulysses out of the ecliptic plane to high latitudes. This cannot be done with any man made launch.


Ulysses landed on the planet of Jupiter on February 8, 1992. Since that day on, it has traveled to higher latitudes with maximum Southern latitude of 80.2 degrees. This was achieved on September 13,1994. Then in June through September of 1995, Ulysses traveled through high northern latitudes.   These high latitude observations are being obtained during the quiet portion of the 11-year solar cycle.


The primary mission of Ulysses is to characterize the heliospheric as a function of solar latitude. The heliospheric is the vast region of interplanetary space occupied by the Sun’s atmosphere and dominated by the outflow of the solar wind. The periods of primary

    • Drilling Fluid Mud Cleaner http://www.kosunservices.com/solids_control_equipment/drilling_fluid_mud_leaner.html Drilling Fluid Mud Cleaner Application KOSUN QZS series high effective mud cleaner is the second or third stage separation equipment of drilling liquid, which will deal with the mud after being treated by the first grade separation equipment. The barite will be recovered and cuttings which are bigger than barite will be removed. Then the barite in the underflow will flow into circulation tanks through the screens when the weighted mud passes while the particles that are bigger than mesh will be removed. Features & Benefits of Mud Cleaner: 1. Polyurethane (PU) Material for desander and desilter cones. 2. Desander cones can be installed between one and three 10”desander cones, each cone can process 500GPM and makes a separation between 40 and 100 microns. 3. Desilter cones can be installed between eight and twenty 4”or 5”desilter cones ,each cone can process 80 GPM, and makes a separation between 15 and 75 microns. 4. Mechanical Deck Adjustable while operation for reliable performance. 5. Compact design with small footprint, with top feed and wire feed two option. 6. Hook-strip shaker screen for fast screens changing with PWP and PMD screens. http://www.kosunservices.com/solids_control_equipment/drilling_fluid_mud_leaner.html
