GALEX data license[edit]

I'm not quite sure if data 'released to the public' (according to their web page) means PD. Can someone clarify? --Ayacop (talk) 13:06, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

I suspect 'released to the public' means it is publically accessible, rather than being PD. Kind of like a library book.—RJH (talk) 22:38, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
As a NASA space telescope, I would think it would fall under the same rules as with Hubble. I think Hubble data is PD after one year. -- Kheider (talk) 01:37, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
Read Can we use this data for publications? -- Kheider (talk) 21:40, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

What happened?[edit]

What is going on with this thing? It's supposed to be fully operational, but there is seriously like no interest in it. InMooseWeTrust (talk) 20:03, 10 October 2010 (UTC)

Chronology and current status[edit]

It would be great to have a chronology of operations and a detailed status of the satellite systems and consumables. How long can it last ? Have the instruments degraded ? - Rod57 (talk) 09:35, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
