AbstractThe Berkeley Extreme Ultraviolet/Far Ultraviolet Shuttle Telescope (BEST) will be launched on the Space Shuttle in November, 1984, as part of the NASA UVX project. The Berkeley spectrometer will make observations of the cosmic diffuse background in the 600-1900 Å band, with a spectral resolution of 10 Å. The sensitivity and spectral resolution of the instrument make it ideal for the study of components of the interstellar medium in the 104- 106K range.
