Abstract
      The Einstein Observatory (also known as HEAO-2 or HEAO-B) was operational from 1978 November 13 until 1981 April 25 when the attitude control system failed. The Solid State Spectrometer (SSS) was operated intermittently between 1978 December 1 and 1979 October 22. However, the cryogen cooling for the detector was used up by about 2 weeks prior to the date of this last observation, so that the last reliable observation of the SSS is considered to have occurred on 1979 October 03. The SSSRAW database accesses the raw SSS data (and the associated monitoring proportional counter, MPC, data), restored in FITS format at HEASARC from the original machine dependent format data set. This is a service provided by NASA HEASARC .
