The Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer was a NASA-supported astronomy mission that was launched on June 24, 1999, to explore the Universe using the technique of high-resolution spectroscopy in the far-ultraviolet spectral region. The Johns Hopkins University had the lead role in developing and operating the mission, in collaboration with several other universities.

STScI provided support to FUSE for planning and scheduling (SPIKE), operational software (OPUS) and provides the FUSE archive through MAST.
