A FURST look at the VUV Sun as a Star

Thanks to the Hubble Space Telescope, we know the input of radiation from Alpha Cen A to our solar system far better than that of our own Sun.  The Full-Sun Ultraviolet Rocket Spectrometer (FURST) will obtain the first moderate resolution (R > 104), radiometrically calibrated VUV spectrum of the Sun-as-a-star. I will describe the instrument design, scientific prospects, and broader impacts of the mission.
