  • Interplanetary space is a cosmic laboratory for surface scientists. Energetic photons, ions and electrons from the solar wind, together with galactic and extragalactic cosmic rays, constantly bombard surfaces of planets, planetary satellites, dust particles, comets and asteroids. Many of these bodies exist in ultrahigh vacuum environments, so that direct particle–surface collisions dominate the interactions. In this article, we discuss the origins of the very tenuous planetary atmospheres… CONTINUE READING
