  • NLSI’s CCLDAS Team Building Dust Accelerator


    CCLDAS supports experimental facilities for carrying out small-scale, dusty plasma experiments.

    The moon’s fine dust, the result of millions of years of meteoritic bombardment, is highly electrostatically charged because of its exposure to the solar wind, UV radiation, and magnetospheric plasmas. Charged lunar dust moves in all directions, is lofted many kilometers above the lunar surface and sticks to anything it comes in contact with, creating challenges for instrument programs and human exploration of the moon.
