NEW HORIZONS ALICE PLUTO ENCOUNTER RAW V3.0

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

This data set contains Raw data taken by the New Horizons Alice Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph instrument during the Pluto encounter mission phase. This is VERSION 3.0 of this data set. This data set contains ALICE observations taken during the the Approach (Jan-Jul, 2015), Encounter, Departure, and Transition mission sub-phases, including flyby observations taken on 14 July, 2015, and departure and calibration data through late October, 2016. This data set completes the Pluto mission phase deliveries for ALICE. This is version 3.0 of this dataset. Changes since version 2.0 include the addition of data downlinked between the end of January, 2016 and the end of October, 2016, completing the delivery of all data covering the Pluto Encounter and subsequent Calibration Campaign. It includes multi- map and Lyman-alpha observations of Pluto and Charon, histograms of the Pluto system moons, and a number of calibration observations of Rho Leo and other stars. Also, updates were made to the calibration files, documentation, and catalog files. The data were re-run through the updated pipeline, which changed the FITS headers of the raw data set, but not the FITS data. The updated Effective Area calibration file (pa_aeff_007.tab) changed the calibrated data.
