Silica Aerogel for Capturing Intact Interplanetary Dust Particles for the Tanpopo Experiment

Abstract

In this paper, we report the progress in developing a silica-aerogel-based cosmic dust capture panel for use in the Tanpopo experiment on the International Space Station (ISS). Previous studies revealed that ultralow-density silica aerogel tiles, comprising two layers with densities of 0.01 and 0.03 g/cm3 developed using our production technique, were… (More)
