Unusual materials effects observed on the thermal control surfaces experiment (S0069)A number of unusual effects were observed on the Thermal Control Surface Experiment (TCSE) test samples, front cover, and structural components. These include induced UV fluorescence, the migration and degradation of KRS-5 materials, atomic oxygen effects, contamination, texturing, discoloration, and meteoroid/debris impact. LDEF (Long Duration Exposure Facility) mission induced fluorescence was observed on several TCSE samples. Similar fluorescence was observed on LDEF leading edge materials from Experiment A0114.
