Welcome to the  TS93 Homepage

   The TS93 balloon and gondola after take off.

The TS93  instrument was flown from Fort Sumner, New Mexico, on 1993 September 8 at a constant altitude of 36 km at an average depth of 4.5 g cm-2 of residual atmosphere for a period of 25 hr.
Two completely new instruments, a transition radiation detector and a silicon-tungsten imaging calorimeter, were added to the magnet spectrometer already flown. These two detectors provided a proton rejection factor better than 3 10 4.
