Micrometeoroid and Orbital Debris Impact Inspection of the HST WFPC2 RadiatorObjectives: I.) Conduct micrometeoroid and orbital debris (MMOD) impact inspection of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) radiator: a) Document the physical characteristics of large (> or equal to 300 microns) impact features. 1. Locations and distribution. 2. Crater shape, size, depth, volume b) Extract residues from craters for compositional analysis. c) Perform hypervelocity impact tests for data interpretation II. Use the data to validate or improve the near-Earth MMOD environment definition. a) Flux. b) Orbital debris versus meteoroids. c) Time history (limited).
