1. INTRODUCTION
The years have seen the growth of a highly varied as-
tronomy and astrophysics program in the Department of
Physics and Astronomy at the Johns Hopkins University. A
highlight of the past year was visits by most Hopkins as-
tronomers to the Apache Point Observatory to achieve famil-
iarity with the 3.5-meter telescope. Participation in the Sloan
Digital Sky Survey continues to be strong, and there are
many other projects that are moving forward: the Advanced
Camera for Surveys HST project; Far-Ultraviolet Spectro-
scopic Explorer; Sounding Rockets just renewed for a fur-
ther three-year period ; HUBE, the Hopkins Ultraviolet
Background Explorer selected by NASA in April 1996 as a
MIDEX Alternate payload ; Hopkins Ultraviolet Telescope
