Abstract:

Research was directed toward the determination of the properties of extra-terrestrial particles entering the earths atmosphere. Instrumentation and techniques were developed with which to measure the influx rate, size, mass, and velocity of micrometeorites. Additional instrumentation was developed to study and calibrate micrometeorite detectors in the laboratory and to investigate new detection techniques. Instruments were installed in balloons, rockets, and other space vehicles and the data obtained from the flights of these vehicles was analyzed in the laboratory. Author
