INTRODUCTION Realizing and understanding the effects of the near-Earth space environment on a spacecraft during its mission lifetime is becoming more important with the regeneration of America's space program. Included among these potential effects are erosion and surface degradation due to atomic oxygen impingement, ultraviolet exposure embrittlement, and delamination, pitting, cratering and ring formation due to rnicrometeoroid and debris impacts. These effects may occur synergistically and… CONTINUE READING
