The Design of the Automated Operation System for the Paris METEOR Line

Acquisition of Subsurface Comet Samples

Optical Scatter From a Space Craft Mirror Due to Microscopic Impacts
This article addresses the issue of how micrometeoroid and man made debris in the space environment can adversely change the optical resolution of a mirror. The study used an algorithm...

The LEO Particulate Environment as Determined by LDEF

Overview of Space Environmental Effects
The natural environment for low Earth orbit subjects satellites to various forms of damage, ranging from particulate impacts, ultraviolet light, atomic oxygen erosion and charged particle...

Distributional Information for Ejection Fragments
Due to lack of experience of building structures on the lunar surface and the variability that will exist in the loading as well as the structural resistance, it is suggested that initial...

A Near-Term, Long-Duration, Lunar Outpost Design
The design of a long-term human outpost on the Moon will require shielding from not only solar proton and galactic cosmic radiation but also from micro-meteoroid and meteoroid strikes....

Regulatory Law and Policy to Support Space Mining
Adaptation of modern mining law principles, such as those embodied in the U.S. General Mining Law of 1872, would protect mineral resource interests in space. A good illustration of a closely...

Rocket Fuel to Earth Orbits from Near-Earth Asteroids and Comets
The analysis describes an architecture to bring 10,000 tons units of rocket fuel ore, propellant and construction mass back to low Earth orbit from newly discovered near-Earth comets or...

In Situ Recovery of Water from Dormant Comet Cores & CI Carbonaceous Chondrites
Water and volatiles may be produced by drill holes into dormant comet cores or class CI or CM asteroids. This is modeled after in-situ mining as in the Frasch process sulfur mines of the...

Reliability Analysis of Lunar Structures Under Meteoroid Impact
The United States is slowly moving towards lunar base, and possibly Mars base, activities. Design of structures for these bases requires knowledge about loadings and conditions which in...

Space Station Freedom Pressurized Module Meteoroid/Debris Protection
Protection of spacecraft from the effects of a meteoroid/debris particle impact can add significant weight to the required structure. This paper discusses the meteoroid and debris environments...

Lunar, Martian & Asteroid Structures Built In situ

Carbonyl Extraction of Lunar and Asteroidal Metals
The century-old Mond process for carbonyl extraction of metals from ore shows great promise as an efficient, low energy scheme for producing high-purity Fe, Ni, Cr, Mn, and Co from lunar...
