Fuse Observations of Diffuse Interstellar Molecular Hydrogen


We describe a moderate-resolution FUSE mini-survey of H2 in the Milky Way and Magellanic Clouds, using four hot stars and four AGN as background sources. FUSE spectra of nearly every stellar and extragalactic source exhibit numerous absorption lines from the H2 Lyman and Werner bands between 912 and 1120 Å. One extragalactic sightline (PKS 2155-304) with… (More)
