1. INTRODUCTION
Historically, the backbone of our expanding astronomy
program has been space ultraviolet instrumentation and mis-
sions, and that portion of our program continues strong, with
the rapid progress of both FUSE Far Ultraviolet Spectro-
scopic Explorer, to be launched in early 1999 and ACS
Advanced Camera for Surveys, for Hubble Space Tele-
scope, to be placed aboard HST in mid 2000 . Our sounding
rocket program continutes to train the experimentalists of the
future, and our participation in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
continues to be vigorous. Theoretical astronomy and ground-
based observing continue as major components of our bal-
anced total astronomy and astrophysics program.
