Aspects of the mass distribution of interstellar dust grains in the solar system from in situ measurements
The in situ detection of interstellar dust grains in the solar system by the dust instruments on-board the Ulysses and Galileo spacecraft as well as the recent measurements of hyperbolic radarExpand

Dust in the local interstellar wind
The gas-to-dust mass ratios found for interstellar dust within the solar system, versus values determined astronomically for the cloud around the solar system, suggest that large and smallExpand

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

Modeling the motion and distribution of interstellar dust inside the heliosphere
The interaction of dust grains originating from the local interstellar cloud with the environment inside the heliosphere is investigated. As a consequence of this interaction, the spatialExpand

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

Deflection of the local interstellar dust flow by solar radiation pressure.
Interstellar dust grains intercepted by the dust detectors on the Ulysses and Galileo spacecrafts at heliocentric distances from 2 to 4 astronomical units show a deficit of grains with masses from 1Expand

Cassini between Venus and Earth: Detection of interstellar dust
[1] We report the successful in situ measurement of interstellar dust particles inside the orbit of the Earth with the Cosmic Dust Analyzer (CDA) on the Cassini spacecraft. The impact ionizationExpand

Penetration of the heliosphere by the interstellar dust stream during solar maximum
[1] We analyze the Ulysses in situ measurements of interstellar dust in the solar system with respect to the temporal variation of the flux density. The data set that is used covers the time fromExpand

Collisional consequences of big interstellar grains
Identification by the Ulysses spacecraft of interstellar grains inside the planetary system provides a new window for the study of diffuse interstellar matter. Dust particles observed by Ulysses andExpand

Interstellar Dust in the Solar System
Abstract The Ulysses spacecraft has been orbiting the Sun on a highly inclined ellipse almost perpendicular to the ecliptic plane (inclination 79°, perihelion distance 1.3 AU, aphelion distance 5.4Expand
