Helium and Neon in "Blank" STARDUST Aerogel Samples
Physics and Astronomy
Helium and neon concentrations and compositions were measured in 49 samples of “blank” aerogel from Stardust cell C2044. Five samples show interesting compositions that if related to the Track 41 impactor indicate a complicated parent particle.
