  • Responsible Thematic Node: Small Bodies, Dust, and TNOs
  • Short Name: Cosmic dust catalog #18
  • Brief description: A catalog of 956 dust grains: informations, pictures and spectra
  • URL: http://curator.jsc.nasa.gov/dust/cdcat18/index.cfm
  • Type: DATA/Laboratory
  • English Language: YES
  • Restricted access: NO
  • Longer description:
    956 dust particles with their main characteristics, images and X-ray spectra are listed. Lines are sorted by particle type: from top to bottom there are cosmic dust particles, terrestrial contamination (natural), terrestrial contamination (artificial) and aluminium oxide spheres.

    Dust grains have been collected during 153.1 hours of stratospheric exposure, with large area dust collectors mounted on a NASA WB-57F aircraft.

    The grains have been analyzed with a scanning electron microscope and an analyzer for X ray energy-dispersive spectrometry. A spectrum in the 0-10 KeV range for each particle has been obtained and its picture (not its data) published.
