抜粋

This paper summarizes two satellite impact experiments completed in 2008. The objective of the experiments is to investigate the physical properties of satellite fragments, including those originated from Multi-Layer Insulation and a solar panel. One test generated approximately 1,800 fragments while the other produced only 1,000 fragments. This difference came from the number of needle-like fragments from carbon fiber reinforced plastics. All collected fragments were analyzed using the same method as described in the NASA standard breakup model and compared with the breakup model. This paper will present: (1) the area-to-mass ratio, size, and mass distributions of the fragments, and (2) the differences in fragment properties between the two tests.
