Airless planetary bodies are directly exposed to space weathering. The main spectral effects of space weathering are darkening, reduction in intensity of silicate mineral absorption bands, and an increase in the spectral slope towards longer wavelengths (reddening). Production of nanophase metallic iron (npFe) during space weathering plays major role in these spectral changes. A laboratory procedure for the controlled production of npFe in silicate mineral powders has been developed. The method… CONTINUE READING
