Description
The records of the UCSD Center for Astrophysics and Space Sciences (CASS) include materials related to the administrative functions, research proposals, and projects of CASS, as well as the records of the High Energy Astronomy Group (HEAG).
Background
The UCSD Center for Astrophysics and Space Sciences (CASS) is an organized research unit that was founded in 1979 to provide scientific direction for the interrelated departments of Physics, Chemistry, and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at UCSD. Designed to link scientists and UCSD scientific departments, it provides a unified management structure for handling federally funded space research projects, and strengthened the quality of space science education and research at UCSD. CASS has given administrative support to such projects as the Faint Object Spectrograph on the Hubble Space Telescope, the Gamma-Ray Spectrometers on Apollo missions 15 and 16, and to the High Energy Astrophysics Group (HEAG).
