Radiation Effects on Spacecraft Materials for Jupiter and Near-Earth Orbiters

  title={Radiation Effects on Spacecraft Materials for Jupiter and Near-Earth Orbiters},
  author={Frank L. Bouquet and K. F. Koprowski},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science},
An overview of radiation effects on spacecraft materials is given in this paper. Specifically, the environment of the Jupiter Orbiting Spacecraft,Galileo, is treated along with analysis methods and simulated testing. Summaries of previous and present material test results are given. Preliminary results of surface erosion on insulation from a space shuttle experiment are summarized.
