The requirements for laboratory model simulation of a rocket-borne ion-sampling probe are reviewed. Some successful experiments were performed to attain the proper value of the ratio of Debye length to model size. However, in the plasma flows produced so far, the ratio of electron temperature to gas temperature was found to be much higher than that relevant to the ionospheric conditions. Author
