synchrotron x-ray microprobe in-situ analysis of extraterrestrial particles collected in aerogel on the mir space stationUsing in-situ x-ray fluorescence, we determined the Cr/Fe, Mn/Fe and Ni/Fe of a particle captured in aerogel on MIR are approximately chondritic, indicating an extraterrestrial origin. Impurity of the aerogel precluded determining the Cu and Zn.
