Suprathermal ion detector experiment (lunar ionosphere detector)The highly directional flow of energetic ions down the magnetosheath is described using three different look directions of the three Apollo 15 SIDE instruments. The effects of the interaction of the LM ascent-engine exhaust with the magnetosheath ions observed at the Apollo 15 site are discussed, and a preliminary analysis of the SIDE data for Apollo 12 and 14 is included.
