This series contains materials arising from Giacconi's involvement with the Large Orbiting X-Ray Telescope (LOXT) proposed for flight on the HEAO-C satellite. The
series consists of proposals, reports, contract materials, publications, memoranda and correspondence relating to the LOXT experiment. The HEAO-C Satellite was eventually
launched in 1979, but the LOXT was not one of the experiments.
