GLUV: A balloon-borne high-cadence ultraviolet monitoring telescope for supernova shock breakouts and exoplanet atmospheres

Sharp, Robert; Tucker , Bradley; Ridden-Harper, Ryan; Bloxham, Gabe; Petkovic, Michael


Routine photometric monitoring at near-ultraviolet wavelengths (< 400 nm) is compromised from the ground due to highly variable atmospheric transmission and cloud cover. The GLUV project will mount a modest sized telescope (200 mm primary) on a series of long-duration high-altitude balloon flights. The wide field camera (∼7 deg 2) will perform high cadence (10-300 second rolling integrations) each night for campaign durations of three to six months. The principle science mission is the...[Show more]
