Project Description

T0052-S Collection of Regolith Experiment (CORE) on a Commercial Suborbital Vehicle

Missions to asteroids pose technical challenges unlike those to larger bodies (e.g., contact with dusty regolith under extreme low gravity stir up dust that may hamper the mission objectives). This experiment intends to test a dusty regolith retrieval mechanism in microgravity conditions on a sub-orbital rocket in order to characterize the issues associated with activities on an asteroid.
