About this event

Talk by Dr Chris Arridge, Planetary Science Group, Mullard Space Science Laboratory.

Instruments to measure particles in space have been placed on spacecraft since the birth of the space age, one early example being the discovery of Earth's "Van Allen" radiation belts by Explorer 1 in 1958. Today they are used in many areas of space science from detecting atoms from the edges of the solar system, measuring how Mars' atmosphere escapes into space, and detecting ice grains ejected in giant geysers from the interiors of moons around giant planets. In this talk we look at how these measurements are performed, how the technology has evolved, and look at some current challenges, including measuring particles in the intense radiation environment at Jupiter.
