Summary

The original finding aid described this as:

Description: Views of the Cosmic Radiation Effects and Activation Monitor (CREAM) experiment and the companion Shuttle Activation Monitor (SAM) experiment equipment (including the Particle Anti-coincidence Mantle (PAM)) set up on the middeck of Atlantis, Orbiter Vehicle (OV) 104, during the STS-44 mission. The CREAM experiment collects data on cosmic ray energy loss spectra, neuron fluxes and inducted radiogravity. SAM measures gamma ray data within the orbiter as a function of time and location. Data will be collected from identical locations for both investigations in an attempt to correlate data between the two.

The objects in this collection are from The U.S. National Archives. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.

Disclaimer: A work of the U.S. National Archives is "a work prepared by an officer or employee" of the federal government "as part of that person's official duties." In general, under section 105 of the Copyright Act, such works are not entitled to domestic copyright protection under U.S. law and are therefore in the public domain.
