Regolith of small asteroids formed by thermal fatigue

The centimeter-sized fragments and smaller particles that make up the regolith — the layer of loose, unconsolidated rock and dust — of small asteroids is formed by temperature cycling that breaks down rock in a process called thermal fatigue, according to a paper published today in the Nature Advance Online Publication.

French, American team finds regolith of small asteroids formed by thermal fatigue

PUBLIC RELEASE DATE: 2-Apr-2014 Contact: Maria Martinez Stothoff maria.martinez@swri.org 210-522-3305 Southwest Research Institute The centimeter-sized fragments and smaller particles that make up the regolith the layer of loose, unconsolidated rock and dust of small asteroids is formed by temperature cycling that breaks down rock in a process called thermal fatigue, according to a paper published today in the Nature Advance Online Publication. Previous studies suggested that the regolith of asteroids one kilometer wide and smaller was made from material falling to the surface after impacts and from boulders that were pulverized by micrometeoroid impacts

Microbes, How Low Can You Go?

The Sun was once thought to provide energy for all life on Earth – meaning that life could not survive without it. In the 20th century, as astrobiologists began to explore the Earth’s most remote and harsh environments, scientists began to question that assumption. We now know that numerous microorganisms are able to obtain the energy they need for life through chemical reactions that do not involve sunlight.

University of Hawaii scientists make a big splash

Researchers from the University of Hawaii – Manoa (UHM) School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST), Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and University of California – Berkeley discovered that interplanetary dust particles (IDPs) could deliver water and organics to the Earth and other terrestrial planets. Interplanetary dust, dust that has come from comets, asteroids, and leftover debris from the birth of the solar system, continually rains down on the Earth and other Solar System bodies. These particles are bombarded by solar wind, predominately hydrogen ions

Interstellar Dust Particles Carry Water, Organic Compounds To Earth

January 27, 2014 Image Caption: The surfaces of tiny interplanetary dust particles are space-weathered by the solar wind, causing amorphous rims to form on their surfaces. Hydrogen ions in the solar wind react with oxygen in the rims to form tiny water-filled vesicles (blue)

Space Dust Possible Source Of Water On Moon And Maybe Even Life On Other Planets

Researchers from the University of Hawaii, Manoa, the University of California, Berkeley, and Californias Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory used state-of-the-art electron microscopes to get a close-up look at particles of interplanetary space dust. What they found was that solar wind radiation had changed the outer rims on the silicate minerals in space dust to water, something scientists previously believed to be the case but werent able to prove because of limited technology. Their study, published in the journal the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, concluded that the water found on interplanetary dust forms from the reaction of solar wind and oxygen in the silicate mineral grains.
