GIADA (Grain Impact Analyzer and Dust Accumulator) on-board the Rosetta space probe is designed to measure the momentum, mass and speed of individual dust particles escaping the nucleus of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko (hereafter 67P). From August 2014 to June 2016 Rosetta escorted comet 67P during its journey around the Sun. Here we focus on GIADA data(More)
The infrared instrument IKS flown on board the VEGA space probes was designed for the detection of emission bands of parent molecules, and for a measurement of the size and temperature of the thermal emitting nuclear region. The instrument had three channels with cooled detectors: an "imaging channel" designed to modulate the signal of the nucleus and two(More)
A rocket payload able to perform a thorough and independent analysis of the He I 58.43340-nm geocoronal and interplanetary emissions is presented. It includes a sun-pointed resonant absorption spectrometer and a sky-scanning resonant absorption photometer. Both incorporate a similar helium resonance cell of original design featuring a most flexible pressure(More)
A miniature resonance absorption spectrometer is able to perform a routine monitoring in space of the line profile and intensity of the He i resonance line from the solar disk with a time resolution of about 1 min and a spectral resolution of 10(5). It consists of a predispersive spectrometer incorporating a helium gas absorption cell. The instrument has(More)
