The third High Energy Astronomical Observatory, HEAO-3 was launched on the 20th Sept., 1979 into a 496 km, 43.6° orbit, and has since been successfully returning data from all three experiments on board. One of these experiments, that intended to study the heavy and ultra heavy nuclei in the cosmic radiation, is described here.
