Summary:The Ulysses spacecraft.
Description:Ulysses is a robotic space probe which was designed to study the Sun. The spacecraft was launched in October 1990 from the Space Shuttle Discovery (mission STS-41) as a joint venture between NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA). Ulysses is equipped with instruments to characterize fields, particles, and dust, and is powered by a radioisotope thermoelectric generator (RTG). It was launched on 10/06/1990 at 19:15 PM UST, and it is still orbiting the Sun. To see the spacecraft, you must set your Celestia date to a time between 10/06/1990 and 12/31/2006. To install Jack's add-on, simply copy the XYZ file to your Celestia\data folder, the 3DS model to your Celestia\data folder, and the SSC file to your Celestia\extras directory.
