Finished projects that produce no data anymore, are officially closed, or where the participation of MPE has been terminated:

The finished projects are stored in the archive.

Abrixas , ALFA , AMPTE , Azur , Compton GRO , Cos B , Equator-S , EXOSAT , Firewheel (Feuerrad) , GeAs detectors , HASTA , Helios , HEOS-1 , HEXE , ISO , LISA , MEGA , Mir-HEXE , PACS (Herschel), PKE-Nefedov , PK-3 Plus , PK-4 , Plasma Lab , ROSAT , SAMPEX , SMM , SOFIA , Stardust , Ulysses

Overview of the finished projects.

For many of those projects where data gathering or operation has been terminated , data analysis and interpretation may still continue.
