Abstract

The potential attained by micrometeorite particles in space is considered and it is shown that it is sufficient for the particles to be detected by an electronic technique. The preliminary design of a suitable sensor is discussed, and it is shown that the system may be extended to measure the velocity and mass of the particles.
