Ulysses, the NASA/ESA mission to study the poles of the sun,
will also search for possible radio emissions caused by
Shoemaker-Levy. During July the spacecraft will be in the midst
of its southern passage around the sun -- measuring the solar
wind as well as fields and particles from positions less than 20
degrees from the sun's south pole.
At that time Ulysses will be about 400 million kilometers
(250 million miles) from the sun, and about twice that distance
from Jupiter. Its combined radio and plasma wave instrument will
also search for radio emissions from Jupiter's magnetosphere that
show effects of the Shoemaker-Levy impacts.
