Heat-Treatment of MgSiO Smokes of Astrophysical Interest: Possible Implications for Olivine-Pyroxene-Silica Assemblages in Chondritic Aggregate IDPsAnhydrous silicates in coarse-grained ferromagnesiosilica principal components (PCs) formed during atmospheric entry flash-heating also constrain the astromineralogy of astrophysical dust. This is because of the unique closed-system behavior of these PCs in chondritic aggregate interplanetary dust particles (IDPs). Additional information is contained in the original extended abstract.
