Electrodynamic Dust Shields on the International Space Station: Exposure to the Space EnvironmentElectrodynamic Dust Shields (EDS) have been in development at NASA as a dust mitigation method for lunar and Martian missions. An active dust mitigation strategy. such as that provided by the EDS, that can remove dust from surfaces, is of crucial importance to the planetary exploration program. We report on the development of a night experiment to fully ex pose four EDS panels to the space environment. This flight experiment is part of the Materials International Space Station experiment X(MISSE-X). an external platform on the International Space Station that will expose materials to the space environment.
