Collisional balance of the meteoritic complex
Taking into account meteoroid measurements by in situ experiments, zodiacal light observations, and oblique angle hypervelocity impact studies, it is found that the observed size distributions ofExpand

The Galileo dust detector
The Galileo Dust Detector is intended to provide direct observations of dust grains with masses between 10−19 and 10−9 kg in interplanetary space and in the Jovian system, to investigate theirExpand

Origins of Solar System Dust beyond Jupiter
The measurements of cosmic interplanetary dust by the instruments on board the Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft contain the dynamical signature of dust generated by Edgeworth-Kuiper belt objects, as wellExpand

Signatures of the Giant Planets Imprinted on the Edgeworth-Kuiper Belt Dust Disk
One method to detect extrasolar planetary systems is to deduce the perturbations of planets on the observed circumstellar dust disks. Our solar system, with its known configuration of planets,Expand

The Cassini Cosmic Dust Analyzer
The Cassini-Huygens Cosmic Dust Analyzer (CDA) is intended to provide direct observations of dust grains with masses between 10−19 and 10−9 kg in interplanetary space and in the jovian and saturnianExpand

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

Impact-driven supply of sodium and potassium to the atmosphere of Mercury
Abstract Vaporization due to meteoritic impact on Mercury supplies sodium atoms to the atmosphere from both the impacting meteoroids and the regolith. The supply rate of sodium depends on the spatialExpand

Clementine Observations of the Zodiacal Light and the Dust Content of the Inner Solar System
Using the Moon to occult the Sun, the Clementine spacecraft used its navigation cameras to map the inner zodiacal light at optical wavelengths over elongations of 3≲ϵ≲30° from the Sun. This surfaceExpand

Kuiper Belt Dust Grains as a Source of Interplanetary Dust Particles
Abstract The recent discovery of the so-called Kuiper belt objects has prompted the idea that these objects produce dust grains that may contribute significantly to the interplanetary dustExpand

Large scale lunar horizon glow and a high altitude lunar dust exosphere
All three Apollo 17 astronauts sketched a “lunar horizon glow,” seen from orbit above the Moon. It is shown that the shape of the glow is compatible with scattering of sunlight off of gas or dust atExpand
