Discovery of Jovian dust streams and interstellar grains by the Ulysses spacecraft
ON 8 February 1992, the Ulysses spacecraft flew by Jupiter at a distance of 5.4 AU from the Sun. During the encounter, the spacecraft was deflected into a new orbit, inclined at about 80° to theExpand

Detection of an impact-generated dust cloud around Ganymede
Dust pervades the Solar System, and is concentrated in the ring systems surrounding the giant planets and along the plane of the planetary orbits (the Zodiacal cloud). Individual dust grains areExpand

Dust Near The Sun
We review the current knowledge and understanding of dust in the inner solar system. The major sources of the dust population in the inner solar system are comets and asteroids, but the relativeExpand

Interstellar dust in the heliosphere
In the early 1990s, after its Jupiter flyby, the Ulysses spacecraft identified interstellar dust in the solar system. Since then the in-situ dust detector on board Ulysses continuously monitoredExpand

The Galactic Environment of the Sun: Interstellar Material Inside and Outside of the Heliosphere
Interstellar material (ISMa) is observed both inside and outside of the heliosphere. Relating these diverse sets of ISMa data provides a richer understanding of both the interstellar medium and theExpand

Dust density and mass distribution near comet Halley from Giotto observations
The dust impact detection system (DIDSY) carried by the Giotto spacecraft has measured the density and mass spectrum (in the range 10−20–10−8 kg) of the dust near comet Halley. Profiles of the dustExpand

The HEOS 2 and HELIOS micrometeoroid experiments
Two micrometeoroid experiments based on the plasma emission caused by impacting hypervelocity dust particles are described. Since 31 January 1972 the first has been flying on the HEOS 2 satelliteExpand

Mechanism for the acceleration and ejection of dust grains from Jupiter's magnetosphere
PERHAPS the most unexpected finding of the Ulysses mission so far has been the detection of quasi-periodic streams of high-velocity, submicrometre-sized dust particles during the spacecraft'sExpand

Dust particle impacts during the Giotto encounter with comet Grigg–Skjellerup
IN the European Space Agency's 1992 Giotto Extended Mission, the Dust Impact Detection System operated successfully during a fly-by that took the spacecraft within about 200 km of the nucleus ofExpand

In situ measurements of interstellar dust with the Ulysses and Galileo spaceprobes
Interstellar dust was first identified by the dust sensor onboard Ulysses after the Jupiter flyby in February 1992. These findings were confirmed by the Galileo experiment on its outbound orbit fromExpand
