Abstract:
The purpose of the experiment is to collect particles, especially those of extraterrestrial origins, from the stratosphere and return them to earth for analysis. A 900 cm2 collection plate will be coated in a silicone oil to trap high altitude particles. A pneumatically operated box lid will be opened and closed at high altitude and the closed box will have a positive pressure to minimize contamination. Particle collected will be compared with samples from the NASA Cosmic Dust Laboratory.
