1989ApJ...336..954M THE DIFFUSE FAR-ULTRAVIOLET COSMIC BACKGROUND RADIATION FIELD OBSERVED FROM THE SPACE SHUTTLE J. MURTHY, R. C. HENRY, P. D. FELDMAN, AND P. D. TENNYSON Department of Physics and Astronomy, Johns Hopkins University Received 1987 December 14; accepted 1988 June 26 ABSTRACT We present ~17 A resolution spectra of the diffuse far-ultraviolet (1200-1700 A) cosmic background in eight regions of the sky obtained from the Johns Hopkins University UVX experiment aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia (STS-61C) in 1986 January. We find a spectrally flat background with brightnesses between 100 and 700 +/- 200 photons cm^-2^ s^-1^ sr^-1^ A^-1^, with some evidence for spatial variations, but not for the high-intensity regions found by other experiments. We cannot confirm the line emission found in this spectral region in one of our target regions by a previous experiment. Subject heading: ultraviolet: spectra
