Resource Detailed View


  • Responsible Thematic Node: Atmospheres
  • Short Name: Martian Atmosphere Simulation Facility, Open University
  • Brief description: TNA2: OU Mars simulation chamber for pressure, temperatures and gas composition
  • URL: http://www.isa.au.dk/networks/euroPlanet/facilities/tna2/martianAtmos.html
  • Type: CONTACT/Facility
  • English Language: YES
  • Restricted access: NO
  • Longer description:
    The chamber is used to both probe the chemical and physical properties of the Martian atmosphere and surface and to test instrumentation designed to probe Martian conditions prior to its deployment in planetary space missions (as in B1). It is a large chamber(horizontal cylinder internal volume ~2 m3) with control of temperature, pressure and gas composition for thesimulation of Mars surface environment. It can accommodate trays of Martian surface analogues (approx. 1 0.5 0.1 m).
