17 The Dust Flux Monitor Instrument (DFMI) on the Stardust and Stardust-NExT missions 18 measured impacts from coma dust particles with masses from ~10 -15 to >10 -6 kg using two kinds 19 of sensors – one based on polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) thin films and the other on acoustic 20 detectors (ACs) mounted on the front and second layers of the Whipple Bumper Shield. At the 21 higher encounter speed of 10.9 km s -1 at Comet 9P/Tempel 1 compared with 6.12 km s -1 at 22 81P/Wild 2 encounter, the… CONTINUE READING
