Abstract:
This proposal seeks to gain a small payload position on the 2016 HASP launch to capture and study passive Interplanetary Dust Particles (IDPs). The capture of IDPs for study has been primarily restrained to expensive long-duration high altitude flights, instrumentation on the International Space Station in orbit, or spacecraft trailing an active cometary coma. IDPs primarily originate from meteor showers and are collected in the form of smoke particles. Through the use of a high voltage electrostatic precipitator, passive IDPs of the full spectrum of size can be actively captured from the mid-to-upper stratosphere for further analysis. This method has never been used to capture IDPs and this experiment seeks to determine its effectiveness. All criteria of mass, power consumption, and structural support have been met according to HASP guidelines.
