NASA's Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) is now in its eighth year of operation and though various campaigns are underway to extend the mission, it is expected that the satellite will take its last observations in January 2001. The EUVE Project has been a productive endeavor; it not only mapped the EUV sky in its first year of operation, but in subsequent years has allowed astronomers to break new ground in many areas of astrophysics.

This poster will review the history of EUVE science and provide a composite picture of the most significant, noteworthy, statistically interesting, and potentially dubious achievements.

This work is funded through NASA/UCB Cooperative Agreement NCC5-138.
